Creative Process Workshop by Riverbed Theatre

Alongside the highly anticipated world premiere of Riverbed Theatre’s taking it down and putting it up, The Coronet Theatre is excited to offer an opportunity to work with this award-winning experimental theatre group and their Artistic Director Craig Quintero.

This exclusive two-hour workshop introduces participants to Riverbed’s unique form of image-based theatre through a series of exercises and games addressing text, movement, objects, and space. Geared towards emerging actors and directors, the workshop provides a creative environment for participants to physically embody the theory and praxis.

 

Suitable for: Emerging professional and semi-professional actors and directors. Participants do not need to have previous acting experience.

Attire: Participants should be dressed in loose-fitting, comfortable attire that allows unrestricted movement.

Experiencing Riverbed Theatre’s taking it down and putting it up is crucial to getting the most out of the workshop. In order to gain free access to this exclusive artistic development opportunity, you must be a ticket holder for Riverbed’s performance. Book here

Additional Information

Riverbed Theatre
Riverbed Theatre was founded in 1998 in Taipei, Taiwan. The company’s image-based, Total Theatre productions blur the boundaries between visual and performing arts. Critics have praised the organic, sculptural quality of Riverbed’s “subconscious” theatre, likening the performances to the best works of Samuel Beckett and David Lynch.

Craig Quintero
As the Artistic Director of the Taipei-based Riverbed Theatre Company, Craig has written and directed over fifty original image-based performances, including productions in Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Singapore, China, France, Germany, and the United States. He is also a sculptor and installation artist whose work has been shown at the Asian Biennial, Venice Biennale Collateral Events, Kobe Biennale, Taipei Biennale, Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taipei MOCA, and the Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art. His VR experience, All That Remains, premiered at the 79th Venice Film Festival (2022) and has been screened at festivals including the Thessaloniki Film Festival, FESPACO, FilmMakerFest, and the Luxembourg Film Festival (where the project won the prize for the Best Immersive Experience). Riverbed’s new VR experience, Over the Rainbow, premiered at the 2023 Tribeca Festival.
