Directing Devised Performance

A day-long intensive workshop focused on directing devised performance, taught by PETE’s Rebecca Lingafelter and Jacob Coleman. We will explore processes for generating material as well as structuring and rehearsing new performance. We will also introduce techniques for generating ensemble and collaborative creation. This workshop is for anyone who is interested in creating new work including directors, playwrights and creator/performers.


Both Jacob and Rebecca have directed PETE’s work in addition to collaborating with other devising companies including Tectonic Theatre, PL115, Fever Theatre, Liminal, and training with the SITI Company and Anne Bogart. They have taught devising at Pacific University and Lewis & Clark College as well as through PETE’s Institute for Contemporary Performance.
