BRB Apprentices work as actors, makers, and thinkers closely, alongside FGP’s Creative Directors and BRB Alumni Retreat Artists for a week in rural Pennsylvania. Apprentices partake in master classes led by FGP’s Directors, as well local community artists, all with the intention of helping them to create a larger, collaborative performance as a group.
BRB Apprentices then bring their work to NYC for one week, where they are guided through a professional rehearsal process. During this week they will see shows, visit rehearsals, meet other New York based artists, and delve further into the process of making and editing original work. The Apprenticeship culminates in a showing in NYC, alongside that summer’s Retreat Artists and Alumni.
