Port of Entry is APTPs second collaboration with Third Rail Projects (‘Then She Fell’ in NYC). This multi-year collaboration will explore a century of immigration history in Albany Park, one of the most culturally diverse neighborhoods in the United States, and the home-making practices of the people who have lived here. Port of Entry will combine the power of immersive, site-specific and youth-created theater in a new work that fosters empathy, promotes mutual understanding, and most importantly, implicates and empowers its audience. This is a second phase workshop for a new devised work, with 3 weeks full time rehearsal schedule, and 3 weekends of invited performances. The full piece will mount next summer (2020) at a site specific location. This summer, we will continue to devise and workshop the piece, and present a limited run of 'showings' to test the key material and structures that will become the backbone of the full piece. To Apply Interested Candidates should send resume, a cover letter, and references to trinamegan(at)gmail.com with “ASM PoE” and your name in the subject. Review of applications begins immediately.
