Rhode Island Devised Theatre Festival

rhode island devised theatre festival

Pawtucket’s Mixed Magic Theatre is hosting the first Rhode Island Devised Theatre Festival, in which seven directors are given just two weeks to prepare a new piece of theatre around a specific theme, incorporating one specific prop. The process began on October 1 and performances began last week. The theme is Monsters We Create, the prop is rope, and the seven directors include Mixed Magic’s Ricardo Pitts-Wiley and former Perishable Theatre artistic director Vanessa Gilbert (with David Higgins). Other directors include Ellen Zahniser, Kate Lester, Corinne Wahlberg, and Herman Jourdan. Audiences and invited theatre professionals get to vote on their favorite, with the winning group receiving $2000 to further develop their piece.
