World Stage

ArtStream Connects Near and Far!

This holiday season we’re grateful for the ways the ArtStream community has stayed connected. While we miss being together in person, we’re energized by the possibilities of our new virtual classes! ArtStream co-founder Nicolette “Nic” Stearns and Teaching Artist Penny Russell co-led an exciting new 4-week class with our UK partner, Reaction Theatre Makers.

“World Stage was one of  the most gratifying teaching experiences I have had in my 30 years in the field.” said ArtStream co-founder, Nic Stearns.

“I learned so much from our brilliant British teaching team and from our equally brilliant British Actors.  It was delightful to have the cross cultural experience while making new friends! This was an incredible experience for all of us and I am also deeply grateful for the chance to teach with the amazing Penny Russell.”

Four ArtStream actors and four Reaction Theatre Maker actors performed their favorite drama experiences, shared theatre games, and collaborated with international actors on the Zoom stage.
