We are creating an interactive, multi-disciplinary performance piece via a democratic, collaborative process. Insurgo Stage Project uses an exploratory creative process involving improvisation, discussion, and writing prompts to create characters, narrative, plot, and structure.

The end product will be a feature-length performance, shared over three evenings at a studio in the heart of the budding arts community in Jersey City, NJ.

Throughout the production process, we will keep the blog current with updates and discoveries from rehearsals. Video artists will be documenting and creating featurettes, which will be posted on the blog as well. We welcome our audience to use these resources to not only observe, but participate in the creative process in progress.

The video trailer is up! Check it out and share it with your friends!
