Representation Roundtables exist as drop-in song clinics and safe-space sharing forums devoted to showcasing emerging people of color, women, and trans identified artists. These commitment-free monthly round tables seek to support underrepresented writers as well as provide an entry-point to other MTF Assembly Line programs.
Women & Trans Round Table
Monthly drop-in song clinic and safe-space sharing forum devoted to showcasing Women and Trans artists. In this supportive creative circle, musical theater creators, performers, directors, designers, choreographers, producers and dreamers who identify as women or trans each receive 15-25 minutes of uninterrupted sharing time, with the potential for feedback.
People of Color Round Table
The People of Color Representation Roundtable exists as a one-of-a-kind experiment wherein a room of artists of all disciplines may share work with and solicit feedback from a group that is 100% exclusively comprised of people of color. Part writers circle, part discussion forum and part low-key performance salon, the POC Roundtable offer artists of color the rare experience of sharing work at any point in the development process with an all-POC audience in a safe space. Participating artists discover what their movement, voice and credo reveal themselves to be when the world suddenly becomes a room where you are no longer “the minority.” By founding the POC Roundtable, Musical Theatre Factory aims to decenter whiteness and to ask the question of what musical theatre could be made, would be made, if the room where it happens happened to be a room comprised of a diverse group of people of color.
