Deerfield Valley Art Association Gallery, 105 Main Street, Northfield 01360
Learn about one way that playwrights find inspiration for the stories they tell and the characters that people their work! In a unique partnering of arts organizations, Silverthorne Theater Company once again joins forces with the Deerfield Valley Art Association to demonstrate the ways in which the different mediums of photography and playwriting provide mutual creative inspiration.
This free one-day 2019 ArtWeek MA event is called PhotoTales: Inspiring Images. On Wednesday, May 1, from 1-3 pm, anyone who wishes may participate. This event will take place in the DVAA’s Gallery at 105 Main Street, Northfield.
Photos submitted by DVAA artists, and archival photos from The Recorder newspaper, will be used as inspiration by participating audience members to write very brief mini-dialogues (no more than 5 minutes each) which other audience members will read – ‘staged readings’ – against the background of the projected photograph. David Rowland, co-founder of Silverthorne Theater Company and a playwright himself, will be on hand to guide the groups in developing their ‘scripts’ that will be performed for those attending.
