Once again I’m writing for HowlRound.com. Hooray!
I started with the idea of how does Freytag’s Pyramid relate to ensemble based work today. I realized it wasn’t quite as satisfying because you can slice something a dozen ways and Freytag’s Pyramid will still somehow relate. While I do think artists/ensembles are doing less linear work (speculation) we may still be deconstructing and rearranging it so that it fits emotionally or otherwise.
Enough about what I didn’t write — more about what I did write! Here is the first installment where I set up the case studies and introduce some of the questions I asked:
“That being said… to each group let me ask some “traditional” questions:
What is your earned versus contributed revenue?
When did you develop a board?
How do you fundraise when you don’t have the title of the play?
And some “Non-Traditional” questions:
How do you tell someone that they have a bad idea?
Who decides when the group needs another member?
Does everyone get paid?”
More to come!
