"The Company | E Summer Intensive is about giving our participants more than just class for the sake of class. It's about how that technique folds into the idea of a repertory company which travels the world.  Our workshops with leaders in Government and the Arts bring one-of-a-kind insights about both the state of the world and the state of the arts today."

PERFORMANCE

On the Ground

A SITE-SPECIFIC and VIRTUAL performance created in support of the One World 2020 Festival.

How does Company | E make its art? The 2020 Intensive includes the creation of a site-specific work, made by Company | E's artists on the Intensive's students.
