Creative Differences with Claudia La Rocco Mar 6, 2016



"Criticism is art. It’s unruly—but also tethered to the art of others, and to whatever culture(s) it seeks to interrogate. These are my beliefs, anyway. What are yours? This two and a half-hour workshop will attempt to function like a mini-laboratory, open to individuals interested in understanding themselves and their world through art." - Claudia La Rocco

Participants should bring a piece of writing (minimum one line, maximum one page) about a performance they’ve seen in the last six months, and are welcome to write about any On the Boards events. This workshop will take place prior to the OtB performance of Dana Michel's Yellow TowelWe invite you to sign up for the workshop, grab tickets to the show, and immerse yourself in a full day of art and critical thinking.
