New Light travelled to the Inland Empire for a workshop production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. The workshop partnered emerging young artists from SoCal with members of our New Light Theater Project ensemble.
The mission was to explore ensemble-based immersive theatre, allowing the actors to create the story of Midsummer around the audience. The audience followed the actors outside the walls of Athens and into the forest, chasing the love-sick, seeing the invisible and witnessing magical mayhem.
The Lead Collaborators
The ensemble for A Midsummer Night's Dream met for a two-week immersive workshop led by Dana Martin, a professor of Theatre at California State University San Bernardino and Sarah Norris, Artistic Director of NLTP. Dana and Sarah met in graduate school at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2005 and have collaborated on several projects, including touring Romeo and Juliet around western Ireland and The Glass Menagerie in upstate New York.
