a paradigm shift for female actors

“What is the most fulfilling role you can imagine? How can you create that role?”

New Georges is proud to partner with Jocelyn Kuritsky, with additional support from The New Group, on The Muse Project, which kicked off earlier this fall with a swell party!  Jocelyn is committed and tenacious and her project is fantastic, we’re thrilled to support it — read lots more about it here.

The Muse Project is a curated salon series in which a selected female actor is invited to take on a project of her own design. It is an actor-driven process. Jocelyn Kuritsky is the lead curator and producer. Brian Long (Rattlestick), Susan Bernfield (New Georges), Ian Morgan (The New Group), and Alek Deva are associate producers.

The project can take on a myriad number of forms: anything from a perfect, tailored monologue, to the inception of an avant-garde dance/theater piece, to the completion of a full-length narrative play. The Muse Project team will assist each actor individually and help her to create a dream team (other actors, writers, directors, musicians, etc.) of collaborators. She will be given one month, along with the space and other resources necessary, to ‘complete’ her piece – or at least arrive at some semblance of a first iteration. Then, the piece will be shared with an audience to incite discussion and further development of the piece.

Connect with The Muse Project on Facebook for the latest updates and to join the conversation!

And feel free to support The Muse Project with a tax-deductible contribution, to help them pay all collaborators generously for their energy and talents. Together, we can raise the industry standards of compensation for the new work development process.
