We’re honored to welcome Tectonic Theater Project’s Matthew Freeman to The Seeing Place, where he will be our special guest speaker on Thursday, June 19, 2014, immediately following a performance of the award-winning play, THE LARAMIE PROJECT.
In this compelling post-show discussion, Matthew will lead our audience in a conversation about “Moment Work” - the unique theater-making technique used by Tectonic company members to create innovative works that explore theatrical language and form. It was this technique that shaped more than 200 interviews into the narrative of THE LARAMIE PROJECT, which is one of the more frequently produced plays in the US and beyond.
