Self-Identity Theatre Camp

Hattiloo’s “Self-Identity Theatre Camp” centers on the study and practice of various elements of Black culture. It provides a space for self-expression while fostering and reinforcing social activity.

Campers start off each morning being introduced to different Black artists and their art forms. Across the four weeks, they listen to and learn about different styles of music and dance, learn about Black painters and playwrights. At the end of each week, they review what they’ve learned.

Over the four weeks, campers will participate in various workshops that include dance, filmmaking through a Black lens, costume design, and more. They will spend each afternoon working together to mount their closing performance.

Classes are Monday – Friday, 9a – 3p. The closing performance is Friday, July 21, 2023 at 6p and Saturday, July 22, 2023 at 2p.

Morning and afternoon snacks are provided. LUNCH IS NOT provided.

Entry fee to all field trips is also included.

In place of a fixed cost, Hattiloo asks parents/guardians to pay what they can during the parent’s meeting.

On Saturday, May 27, 2023, 10a – noon, prospective campers will audition with a cold read. After their monologue, they will have a short interview. They will receive their monologue on-site, before they audition. Audition materials are not handed out in advance.  Afterwards, they will have a short interview.

Callbacks will occur on May 28th. If called back, more information will be given the day of auditions.
