The re-opening of live performing arts across the State of Minnesota in the COVID-19 world will depend to a large degree on ensuring the safety of the back of the house, the front of the house, the actors, and the audience. Minnesotans have begun that discussion on live opening guidelines and the dialogue is continuing.
The Minnesota Theater Alliance, with Springboard for the Arts, Lake Region Arts Council, Central MN Arts Board, Region 2 Arts Council, Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, and Minnesota Citizens for the Arts, will host a webinar with Dr. James Gambone, Professor of Public Health at Capella University and a Minnesota theater producer and director; and Peter Jordan from SLUA, an Irish safety consultancy group working with Irish theater companies on safe opening guidelines. The purpose of the webinar will be to present the “Irish Model” for live theater reopening which will happen throughout Ireland on August 10th of this year.
This educational forum will be an opportunity to learn what our colleagues in Ireland are doing to ensure safe re-openings for their performing arts. The webinar will also allow Minnesota participants to ask questions and share their particular theater opening obstacles.
