for Audience Discussions at The VORTEX

The VORTEX Mission Statement
We conjure and navigate the storm of imagination with urgent, unashamed art that dares to dream the world in which we want to live.
This magic emanates from our cultural harbor, embraces diverse communities, breaks down barriers, and opens channels for vital exchange.

As we recommit to open channels for vital exchange, The VORTEX seeks experienced facilitators to support post-show audience discussions. We intend to cultivate life-long learning among our audiences. By creating moments of conversation, revelation, and healing, we dare to dream the world in which we want to live.

We need facilitators to participate in immediate discussions for Hands Up Hoodies Down, performing for 6 nights at The VORTEX, September 17-19 and 24-26. Thursday-Saturday at 8pm. As a vehicle for social change, this production explores racism and police brutality with a timely, honest, and artistic lens. We also welcome facilitators throughout 2016 for a dynamic range of performances.

Recommended experience in several of these areas: facilitation, communication, dramaturgy, performance as public practice, oppression training, undoing racism training, critical race theory, and VORTEX production history.

Time Required: Attendance of dress rehearsal on Wednesday, September 16 to include a meeting before rehearsal with members of the artistic team and a meeting after the rehearsal with the other facilitators. Attendance of two performances to be scheduled and facilitation of a 20-30 minute post show discussion. Final feedback on your facilitation experience.

Facilitators’ Compensation: A free drink and popcorn for the dress rehearsal. Gift certificates equaling $100: Dinner at Patrizi’s, Drinks at The Butterfly Bar, and Priority seating for a show at The VORTEX.
