 Elevator Repair Service conducts workshops for students (high school through graduate school), professional artists and theater lovers of all stripes. Our workshops range in length from a single afternoon to teaching residencies that last several months. In our workshops, participants work with Artistic Director John Collins and company members to generate scenes from unconventional sources, translating excerpts of novels, video clips, and sound effects into performance. These intensive sessions introduce participants to ERS and it’s history and offer a glimpse into the earliest stages of development of a new project. John Collins is also available for lectures, panels, and guest teaching.
