Members of the Spinningglass ensemble work collaboratively on Lookingglass scripts as they study techniques of ensemble theatre. Students in grades 5 – 8 incorporate Lookingglass core values (invention, transformation and collaboration) into their process of creating an original play. Each session, students will either adapt a Lookingglass script or create an original play based on their ideas. (Exact focus for each session is determined by the ideas of the teaching artists as well as participating students).

Weekly class includes warm-ups and skill-based theatre games and exercises, and often includes exploring Lookingglass’ multi-disciplinary approach (including at times, physical theatre, visual art, etc.). Additionally, students also write, improvise, create, and rehearse their original scripts. On the last day of class, family and friends are invited to watch the “informance” (informal performance) featuring the students’ original work!

All classes, including the end-of-session informance, take place at Fourth Presbyterian Church.
