    If characters are the subject, tech is the composition. Whether it’s lighting, costume, set, sound, etc, tech is vital to the storytelling of any production. The best part is, you the actor can use these tools to elevate and inform your own performance, and you the technician now have a direct hand in storytelling with actors on the stage. Join us as we discuss how to collaborate and create powerful teamwork and performances.
