The inaugural Harbinger Emerging Artist Showcase took place on August 14th and 15th, 2019. Thanks to everyone who made it possible and came to see these wonderful emerging artists at work in their original creation F.I.S.H.
The Harbinger Emerging Artist Showcase — a crash course in performance creation — is a new experiment by Zuppa Theatre Co. that aims to equip young and emerging artists with tools to create and perform original work. On July 8th the countdown began. Three strangers – actor Maher Harb, theatre practitioner Rooks Field-Green and clarinetist Nathaniel McIntyre – set to work creating something from nothing. Over four weeks these artists, under the guidance of Zuppa Co-Artistic Director Ben Stone, created a micro-performance from scratch.
