  • One Year Lease Summer Program in Greece

    This summer Heather taught for One Year Lease Theater Company's Summer Program in Greece. The international college-aged students came from various acting backgrounds. As their primary teacher for the first week of a 4-week intensive, Heather worked on ensemble building & collaboration, kinesthetic awareness, understanding compositional elements, site-specific work, and using myths & monsters to generate physicality. Ultimately they will be performing an original play, in Greek. In addition to rehearsals, the program includes Greek lessons, movement & yoga, various workshops in playwrighting, clowning, chorus work, and more. The students came together as 13 strangers, with 12 company members & associates to guide them, and the growth they showed was impressive.
