The Devised Theatre Intensive is a 3-week, comprehensive, advanced program of study designed for established and emerging artists and educators from across the country. Open to adventurous artists in all media (designers, dramaturgs, performers, writers, dancers, visual artists, musicians, digital artists), the intensive explores the complexities and potentials of a complete devised production process: from initial idea to public presentation through 3 weeks of intensive hands-on-creation.

The intensive is led by Ghost River Theatre Artistic Director, Eric Rose, and long-time collaborator, Jason Patrick Rothery. Eric is known for his larger than life work on GIANT, THE LAST VOYAGE OF DONALD CROWHURST, and HIGHEST STEP IN THE WORLD. Jason is a playwright and former member of the Soulpepper Academy. His most recent work with GRT was on the immersive mindbender: THE INTUITION PROJECT.
