Makbet - Jesse
A free performance of Dzieci's Gypsy-retelling of Shakespeare's classic will be presented at RG520, studio 10D, this Saturday July 9th at 8pm. Arrive at 7:30 for complimentary wine and divination! For more info on the show, click HERE.
Dzieci (pronounced "JEH-chee", the Polish word for "children") has been RG's Artists in Residence for five years. The ensemble is dedicated to the search for the "sacred" through the medium of theatre. Using techniques garnered from such theatre masters as Jerzy Grotowski, Eugenio Barba and Peter Brook, ritual forms derived from Native American and Eastern spiritual disciplines,Dzieci aims to create a theatre that is as equally engaged with personal transformation as it is with public presentation.

Towards this aim, the ensemble balances work on performance with work of service, through creative and therapeutic interaction in hospitals and a variety of institutional settings. Dzieci believes that helping others generates a profound healing effect that not only serves the patient but also strengthens the ensemble's work.

Ripley Grier Events
Hey all-

Hope your summer is going well. A couple of months ago, we decided to try our hand at providing a forum for performers to connect with and learn from the professionals who can help them grab that elusive brass ring called WORK. It has been a runaway success so far, and we have had some great Casting Directors and Agents share their inside scoop on nailing the audition and booking the gig. We are adding more events to our calendar every day to fill the ovewhelming demand. We'll be adding August dates soon, but we just got Angela Mickey to come back on July 21st, following her wildly successful class last month, and we wanted to let all of you know. Also, Ripley Grier's Artists in residence, Theatre Group Dzieci, are presenting a free command performance of Makbet, a retelling of the Shakespearean "classik" in celebration of 5 years with us.  Details to the left.
