News   "Art Isn't Easy": Public to Host "Devoted and Disgruntled" Workshops
 
The Public Theater will host "Devoted and Disgruntled," a two-day theatre think tank created to address the challenges and future of theatre.

Improbable Theatre Company co-founder Phelim McDermott will lead the all-day free-form discussions on Jan. 16 and 17 that will attempt to tackle a host of concerns facing contemporary theatre professionals.

"Devoted and Disgruntled," according to the Public, offers "a chance to work on issues that theater professionals care about and want to take responsibility for, things they want to change, to question, to celebrate, to discuss, and to dream up."

The event is presented as part of the Public's 2010 Under the Radar Festival, which provides a platform for theatre artists working on the fringe, including hybrid works and experimental theatre.

"Devoted and Disgruntled" will take place Jan. 16 from 10 AM-6 PM and Jan. 17 from 1-8 PM at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle Meeting Space, located at 405 W. 59th Street.

$30 passes are currently available by visiting BrownPaperTickets.
