Poor Dog Group Artist Talk

Poor Dog Group: Artist Talk


Members of the Los Angeles-based theatre ensemble Poor Dog Group present an informal discussion detailing research from their month-long educational residency in Holland, Germany, Poland and France, which included more than four dozen interviews with artists, performing arts presenters, and government employees. Company members Jesse Bonnell, Artistic Director, and Itamar Stern, Director of Development and Programming, traveled to participate in ongoing dialogue to explore forms of autonomy and mobility in performance, driven by an interest in developing crosscultural models of engagement with a new generation of theatre practitioners. Building on an exchange initiated at REDCAT in 2010 with the Dutch collective Wunderbaum, Bonnell and Stern sought to uncover new forms of agency and global citizenship, formed in response to shared economic obstacles that are shaping contemporary theatre practices in both Europe and the U.S.

Funded in part by a grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs Cultural Exchange International Program supported in part by public funds from the Netherlands Cultural Services (New York), in partnership with the Dutch Centre for International Cultural Activities (SICA).
