NorthApprenticeshipFree Street Theater Peformance EnsembleFree Streets Performance Ensemble is its capstone program that creates opportunities for youth artists from across Chicago. Participants engage in a rigorous training and production process. The youth artists are teamed with professional artists who mentor and collaborate with the young artists during the training process. As part of their training, participants develop three original productions that are performed each year at Free Street Theater and in public spaces throughout Chicago. The performance ensemble training develops advanced skills in critical inquiry, creative writing, performance, voice and stage production. During the summer, Free Street provides a six-week acting intensive that duplicates the same process of training and performance. In ensemble training, the goal is to strengthen the creative skill set of individuals through group exploration. At the conclusion of one year in the performance ensemble, youth artists demonstrate understanding and execution of the pillars of creating work for public performance: framing compelling questions, creative writing, and using the techniques of voice, body, and technology. In addition, youth develop job-readiness skills such as punctuality, communication and work-preparedness.Spring 2016ActiveGalleryPerformance ArtsTheatre* Be a part of a rigorous two-year training and production process with Free Street as you position yourself to be selected as part of their six-week paid acting intensive training and performance program each summer. * Team up with professional artists who mentor and collaborate with youth artists during the training process. * Develop advanced skills in creative writing, performance, voice, and stage production. * Gain job-readiness skills such as punctuality, communication, planning and execution. * The added bonus to the program is the wage earned for completion of this program.CommunityOrganizationNicole Kornegay [(C)347-702-0002]kornegay.nic@gmail.comPulaski ParkPark312-742-75591419WBLACKHAWKStreetChicagoIL606221419 W.
