Visionbox Studio Presents All the World: A Conversation About Solo Performance with Founding Artistic Director Jennifer McCray Rincon

In this one-hour workshop, Ms. Rincon will present background and description of solo Shakespeare projects developed initially at the National Theatre Conservatory and later as a recurring performance project at Visionbox. The conversation will articulate some of the challenges as well as benefits of solo work. This will be an interactive workshop where artists can ask questions and gain valuable insights into the process of creating original solo work. Visionbox will be presenting two hour-long performances during the Fringe Festival and hosting an extraordinary solo piece, Dr. Glas by Jeffrey Hatcher, with British actor Daniel Gerroll.
