The Ensemble Method
For over a decade, Dodgeball Theatre has been developing an original Ensemble Method with its company artists, playwrights, and the Teen Ensemble.
In conversation with contemporary theatre-making practices, Dodgeball Theatre developed a process for devising original works and a means of collaborative artist training. Exemplified each year by the training and work done by the Teen Ensemble, Dodgeball's Ensemble Method combines writing, design, and performance to create multimedia productions that blend the physical avant-garde with journalism, poetry, and literary works.
The Ensemble Method is part of all of Dodgeball's work, from elementary-aged classes to full-length productions. The pioneering work done by the Teen Ensemble and the company artists looks to create a new means of making and engaging with art on the stage.
