Our mission... is to challenge artists to ignite endless possibilities through collaboration. At Wobble Rocket, artists young and old work together to create stellar theatre and film work that speaks to our communtiy with a unique, unified, inspirational voice. Through this process, we guide and strengthen the intellectual and creative development of all artists. Wobble Rocket opportunities take many forms: Classes, Workshops, Advanced Audition-Only Projects, Residencies, etc.
Wobble Rocket harnesses the wisdom of professional artists, the imagination of young people, and the inspiration of both to empower cutting edge creativity. Artistic and intellectual development is part of everything we do as story tellers.
1. Via classes or workshops, Wobble Rocket artists (young and old) learn the art of improvisation and collaborative story telling. They learn to be fearless, focused, and flexible, and apply these skills to a final production. Depending on the focus of the class, the final production can take the form of a live scripted performance, a spontaneous improv performance, or a filmed project, (or even something we have yet to imagine!).
2. Those who who choose to build toward more advanced work audition for a troupe: an ensemble of both professional and young artists. We craft a collaborative team who explore production goals, and work with a Director/Teaching Artist to achieve it. Currently, the main project for young artists is Saturday Morning Launch. Because we function as a production company, more opportunities arise based on projects and ideas brought to us by clients (other organizations), professional artists, and young people with a passion.
3. Through an interview process, we include a team of experienced professional artists (designers, writers, actors, whatever will aid the project) to mentor and collaborate with the young artists throughout the project.
4. Through a streamlined and supportive rehearsal process, the team of pros and students craft an extremely high-quality product.
