Our Mission Company 360 recognizes an actor’s calling to use their craft to not only entertain but to challenge their audiences as well. For this reason, Company 360’s mission is to create a dramatic troupe which seeks to address needs within the community, be they local, national, or global. We are seeking theatre makers who are not only comfortable with a variety of acting styles, including comedic, serious, abstract, and Shakespearean, but who also believe passionately in the creation of their art.
Giving Back Part of Company 360's mission is to raise awareness of different areas of need by partnering with various non-profits and charities at the local, state, national, and global level. Each month we will be partnering with a different organization/charity and raising funds to be donated to that cause through our performances and active advocation.
The Troupe The Drama troupe will be comprised of actors who are committed to serving and working with Company 360 for the season designated in their contract. Working collaboratively with other members of the troupe, we will put on a variety of performances including individualized performances, small and large group scenes, and full productions. Rehearsals will take place on a weekly basis for the entire troupe with additional rehearsal opportunities throughout the week as determined by the needs of the production and individuals involved.
Livestream performances of rehearsal, finished rehearsal pieces, and discussion topics will take place each month. An immediate talkback involving the performing actors, other troupe members, and online audience will take place and also be livestreamed. Occasionally livestreamed discussions may take place which are audience or topic led, such as discussing different genres, playwrights, character types, etc. Topics and discussion times and dates will be advertised via the Company 360 website and other social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.) During the talkback, we will be calling attention to the organization/charity we are partnering with that month and asking for donations to be submitted.
Although the livestream performances are an immediate focus, the troupe will be in rehearsal for larger scale productions to take place per season as well.
Note: At the Artistic Director's discretion, additional responsibilities may be given in the areas of directing, teaching and leading workshops, and other leadership responsibilities.
Outside Company 360 As artists, we believe strongly in the need for the creation of art in all it's forms. Yet we also recognize that many artists answer to another calling - that of our families. We also recognize that like live performances, the unexpected can often occur within our families and we must simply roll with those changes. For that reason, Company 360 seeks to be as flexible and understanding as possible (within reason) regarding our troupe members and their families. If that means some of those family members sit in on rehearsals out of necessity, we view that as a step towards raising the next generation of artists.
Company 360 is a professional performing arts company that strives to think outside itself. We believe in art that doesn't discriminate. Community giving and social awareness through performance with styles of dance as diverse as our artists."
