Devised 2020

Join Lormarev Jones as she introduces participating students to the conception of original work through ensemble devising. Students will be exposed to different devised theatrical pieces, gaining a foundational understanding of both devised performance, playwriting, and movement work.

Students and staff spent last fall in phase one and two, devising and writing material based on their individual and collective experiences of 2020.

Spring 2021 will continue with phases three and four. Students will be able to continue wringing and contributing to the show as well as audition and perform in late April.


  • Expose students to examples of devised performance
  • Develop playwriting skills
  • Energize students by creating ensemble and a safe, healing, creative space
  • Provide an opportunity for students to create an original performance for which they have ownership and agency
  • Present a completed performance: live, virtual, or hybrid

Phase Three: Molding & Crafting the Script

March 1 – March 19, 2021

  • Students will make creative decisions about the content and structure of the pieces with staff guidance.
  • Students will continue to develop the script based on work from phases one and two.
