Self-Producing for Artists and Ensembles
And our self-producing series, led by the TEAM’s Producing Director Manda Martin and industry guests, continues this spring with two more workshops about the business side of making and sustaining your work. Each two-hour session is a peer-to-peer discussion over drinks–your registration fee includes your first beer or beverage of choice. Both workshops will be held in Manhattan–location to be confirmed.
Touring Your Work
Tuesday, April 18
Manda and Touring Producer Lucy Jackson will share from the TEAM’s 13 years of road-tested experience touring around the country and around the world. We’ll discuss approaching presenters and venues, how to put together a tour rider, what to anticipate in a tour budget, touring fees and box office splits, and the exhilarating gamble of taking a show to the Edinburgh Fringe.
Collaboration Agreements & Contract Basics
Monday, May 1
Making new work collaboratively—whether you’re a 15 member devised ensemble like the TEAM, or a small group of artists working together on one project—can get tricky when it comes to articulating everyone’s ownership of the final work. With theatre agent Di Glazer from ICM Partners, we’ll look at a template agreement and unpack the how and why of drafting your own. We’ll also take your questions on other kinds of contracts for making and presenting your work, and working with an agent as an individual artist or ensemble.
