This workshop is tailored towards those who deal with leadership and decision-making within theatre and theatre workers wishing to help artists complete their productions.

Drawing from her experience in France and abroad, Anne de Amezagawill reflect on the structuringof a production, maintaining relationships with collaborators and co-producers, working with and under institutions, international touring, and the audience relationship.

An emphasis will be placed on the importance of long-term dedication as the only method of fostering an understanding of one’s work and establishing and maintaining stable working relationships.

The most crucial aspect is ‘timing’: things should not be rushed but they cannot be too slow moving; one should fully commit oneself to the production process, find collaborators that fit the moment, and leave time for reflection and adjustment.
