Training in 2017

January 17, 2017

We’ve just announced our first three trainings for 2017. Upcoming trainings are Clown Class with Philip Cuomo, and two Suzuki/Viewpoints Intensives in June. We have also just begun accepting applications for our 2017/18 Institute for Contemporary Performance year of training. Contact Jacob Coleman at jacob@petensemble.org for more on any of these training opportunities.

PETE Awarded OCF Grant For Chekhov Project

We are thrilled to announce that the Oregon Community Foundation has chosen PETE as one of 18 recipients of their Creative Heights grant. This major award will support work on PETE productions of Chekhov‘s Uncle Vanya, The Seagull, and The Cherry Orchard, in collaboration with translator Štĕpán Šimek. Over the next two years, PETE will work with Šimek to develop fresh English translations of these classic texts, and in 2018 we’ll premiere a vital new Uncle Vanya. We are honored to continue the collaboration that began with our work on The Three Sisters, and look forward to bringing you dynamic, surprising Chekov productions in the years to come. This unprecedented grant of $77,000 represents a huge step forward for PETE. We’ve got a lot to do. Please consider joining OCF in supporting PETE’s future work – check out our support page for more. We look forward to the next two years of growth, collaboration, and experimentation.
