Ryan Gilliam is the Artistic/Executive Director of Downtown Art.
In the coming season, I want to take on:
1. Bringing together teen writers and composers to create new music theater in the ‘Eastside Stories' project. I am really psyched about this.
2. Finding new ways to work with staging and sound in ‘The Bowery Wars, Part II’. We've broken ground with our ways of connecting street performance and music. What new variations are possible?
3. Using technology and social media to support our projects. We’re going to have an Ipad in rehearsals, our blog is gathering steam, our Twitter followers are growing, and we're building a new Wordpress site for our Festival. Possibilities abound.
