The mission of /A•STIR/ is to introduce movement as a narrative tool to writers, composers, directors and producers in the early writing and development stages of new musicals and plays.
/A•STIR/ was established in 2014. The first writing teams to work with /A•STIR/ included Adam Gwon, Sarah Hammond, Ty Defoe, Tidaya Sinutoke, Matte O’Brien and Matt Vinson. The unconventional experiments-in-process have directly lead to fully produced readings in NYC, developmental workshops at Syracuse University and College of Charleston, professional & archival videos and public presentations. /A•STIR/ works with Jennifer Jancuska + The BringAbout, a nest of artists, which activates each new musical or play with a uniquely diverse yet cohesive bundle of instinct, skill, language, and movement. Their talents have surged in performances, from Broadway to the most outrageous concerts, videos, live events and beyond.
The Fall 2016 /A•STIR/ program has been confirmed. Please check back January 2017 for Spring 2017 /A•STIR/ application details.
The full company of The BringAbout continues to include collaborating artists:
Chris Dwan, Carson Higgins, Anna Eilinsfeld, Fredric Odgaard, Gregory Haney, Monette McKay, Zachary Stewart, Nick Sacks, Morris Parker, Andre Malcolm, Clay Bradshaw, Christina Eskridge, Ashley Marinelli, and Adam Vanek.
