Epic Theatre Center - 2005

Funded in March, 2005: $44000 for 2 years
The Dana grant will enable Epic Theatre Center to produce a comprehensive teaching artist training program that will train 6 new full-time salaried teaching artists in its "Journeys" program. The Journeys series uses ancient Greek plays such as Antigone as templates for student investigation of contemporary social issues and of the rights and responsibilities of individual citizens in a democracy. Each Epic 4-phase training program will take place over one full year; include one hundred hours of training; and a series of classroom assistantships.
