As an actor, are you looking for an opportunity to practice and get feedback on your audition for the coming TPS Generals or to hone your cold reading skills? Do you enjoy the challenge of responding to new scripts with the playwright actually in the room?
As a playwright, are you feeling isolated or looking for structure? Do you sometimes feel defensive or shut down when others talk to you about your writing? Are you interested in non-directorial feedback that is centered on observation rather than correction? Have you been wishing for a forum where you can show your work and receive feedback in a safe and supportive environment?
As a theatre artist, are you looking for an ongoing forum to practice your craft? Do you want to deepen your observational and interpretive skills in a supportive community of peers?
If you’ve answered yes to any of the above, then The Field-Seattle 2014 Winter Session for Actors and Playwrights may be for you! This is a special six-week opportunity for playwrights and actors to gather together in a safe and supportive studio environment, to share work, and to learn and practice a discipline known as reflective feedback.

The Field’s reflective feedback method reveals how a creative work is perceived by others and provides detailed information that helps artists hone their vision. By focusing on what’s happening in the work and how those choices shape the work, Fieldwork respects the autonomy and vision of each artist. The Fieldwork “reflective feedback” process respects the artist’s primary role as creative decision-maker and leaves it to him/her to decide whether and how to make use of the feedback.
A Field session is not a class. It is a group of artists, facilitated by peer-participants. Our aim is not to function as editors or directors, but to give one another generous feedback about what we have seen or heard in their work and how it affects us.
If you have questions or to register for the session: Contact Karen at (206) 938-0897 or [email protected] Payment may be made by check or money order payable to Shunpike by the second week of the session or by credit card via our website.
