Old Globe: Detrás del Telón Workshops
Behind the Curtain is going bilingual with its Spanish version: Detrás del Telón. This free series of interactive workshops offering a chance to explore the magic of creating a theatrical production was originally held at our Community Partner venues, but has moved online for the time being. Due to their growing popularity and a wish to reach all audiences, there will now be a separate edition for Spanish-speaking audiences to enjoy at home. This fun and educational workshop features the same structure and industry guests as the original, but will have simultaneous live translations for audiences to comment on and engage with.
The first Detrás del Telón will explore the world of lighting designer Heather Reynolds with the help of Arts Engagement Teaching Artists and co-hosts Tara Ricasa and Valeria Vega. Viewers will be introduced to a different design discipline each week by Globe designers and artists in several fields, including costumes (Shelly Williams and Charlotte Devaux), sets (Joe Powell), sound (Paul Peterson), props (Dave Buess), hair and makeup (Ali Reyes), and casting and directing (Lamar Perry), all of whom will provide unique insights and lead hands-on activities teaching the principles of design while offering practical and transferable skills. Join live on The Old Globe Arts Engagement’s Facebook page.
