Default Emerging Artist Scholarship for Celebration Barn Just Announced!

Celebration Barn Theater is Maine's center for immersive physical theater training. Located on a farm in South Paris, Celebration Barn offers a full season of workshops and performances to fuel the development of new highly engaging theater. A new scholarship has just been announced for The Celebration Devising Intensive Workshop running July 14-26.

At the heart of the Barn’s approach to making theater, The Celebration Devising Intensive is for directors, teachers and performers interested in devising their own theater pieces or in teaching others how to create original theater.

Core teachers Davis Robinson, author of The Physical Comedy Handbook, and Karen Montanaro, world renowned dancer and mime artist, will be joined by special guests including Broadway's Avner “The Eccentric” Eisenberg, physical theater performer Bronwyn Sims, and circus artist Fritz Grobe.

This is an extraordinary opportunity for an artist to leave behind daily demands, and to immerse in creative and collaborative theater making!

Applicants for the Emerging Artist Scholarships must be at least 18 years of age. While priority may be given to Maine residents, all are encouraged to apply. To apply, submit a registration form along with a headshot, resume, and a letter of introduction that speaks to your motivation for taking this workshop and expresses how this scholarship is helping you overcome financial obstacles to attend. Applications must be submitted electronically to by Wednesday, May 7, 2014.
