Grow. Go. Do.

CORE manifesto: Grow. Go. Do. Grow. Return. Share.

We are a company that works together on our productions throughout the year but each of us also have outside projects on which we work.

Projects that present different challenges and exercise other elements of our individual talents. It is then upon our return to Core productions that we share what we’ve been both willingly and reluctantly taught

All failures and successes in life inform your being and your work. All interactions and perspectives keep you fresh, trained, sharp, and knowledgeable.

Experiencing life should transform you.

On a common trajectory, our objective as a company in these individual endeavors is to grow simultaneously and we check in with each other along the way to support personally and artistically.

“You’re different,” he said. You’ve changed.”
“Good,” was the only suitable response.

This week we celebrate growth.
Christopher has directed The Royal Family at LTVB which opens Tomorrow night! Congrats to you sir! Go see it everyone!

Laura is directing The Tempest for TCC’s Shakespeare in the Grove this year! Rehearsals started this week and it’s set to open June 25 and it’s sure to be awesome!

Eddie, Emel, Nancy, & Chris are heading up to Baltmore next weekend for a Lessac Workshop at Center Stage taught by the amazing Robin Aronson Carr! So very excited for this little reunion and being introduced to this technique!

Dive in people. The water’s fine.

“The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.”

Love and art to all.

Welcome back

This last week has really been a wonderful and busy little welcome back to HR!

-We were more than happy to provide a little movement assist to the centennial celebration of the Wells. Many congrats to Patrick Mullins and Virginia Stage Company for a most excellent evening and party. 

-We were honored to visit Peter Schulman‘s fantastic ODU French class to talk a little Sartre and our No Exit production and the local existence of french theater. Thanks, Peter, it was a great time!

-also…. We received some really great news this week about some future projects that we can’t quite spill yet but hold on to your seats, we still have a couple of more meetings! We’re really excited!

Proud to travel, Proud to be home. Thanks to all of you who are the artbeat of the art scene.
