GO BEHIND-THE-SCENES AND INSIDE THE PROCESS WITH AN INTERACTIVE LOOK AT THE DEVELOPMENT OF A WORLD PREMIERE PRODUCTION, INSPIRED BY THE LIFE, DEATH, AND PHOTOGRAPHY OF FRANCESCA WOODMAN, FEATURING A CAST OF 25 WOMEN.
At this sneak peek, you'll meet Playwright George Brant, Director Olivia D'Ambrosio, and members of our epic cast.
First, Dabney Hailey, a curator and resident of East Cambridge, will guide us as a group to look deeply at and discuss one of Francesca Woodman's photographs using a method called Visual Thinking Strategies. Then, members of the cast read will read the scene in the play that that same photograph inspired. Finally, you'll have an opportunity to ask questions of George, Olivia, and the creative team, about the script and the process of bringing a brand new play into the world.

Notes From Liv
I went to school for acting, but have a strong background in athletics, and often contemplate the similarities between sports and live performance.
