ACTS OF LOVE: Performance Lab – Spring 2020

Directed by David Deblinger

A group of primarily international performing artists build a virtual ensemble committed to creating and eventually recording a variety of short digital segments loosely inspired by the theme, “Acts of Love.” The segment categories will include: stories/moments of remembered experience, music/song, movement/dance, comedy (sketch, stand-up, character, puppet-show, etc.). Footage will eventually be selected, edited and framed by an animated narrative, yet to be created.

The long term goal is to create three webisodes and a template for a series.

We are seeking artists willing to support one another to take creative risks, and build this international, virtual ensemble, creating a safe space, using our work to make new connections with ourselves and one another.

Expected work outside of class for the term can vary between 8-16 hours.

Rehearsals will be conducted over Zoom videoconferencing.

Actors in HB Studio’s International Studio Class Program for Spring Term 2020 are invited to express their interest in participating in this project by emailing
