The Department of Community and Cultural Affairs’ Artist-In-Residence Programme has brought outstanding artists to Bermuda for the last 10 years. During the Programme, visiting artists conduct classes, give performances and conduct workshops with student groups over a period of time ranging from one week to one month.
This year, scholar, playwright, director, and poet Dr. Michael Gilkes will give a month-long theatre workshop in February 2010. He will address all aspects of theatre from the script to the stage including stagecraft, lighting, and directing.
Members of the public with an interest in playwriting will have the opportunity to explore the elements of creating a successful performance.
The tentative outline for the programme is for scheduled meetings three times per week with the aim of staging short plays or sketches written by participants for public presentation.
