Ghost lights have stood vigil over unoccupied theatres for years, protecting the stage in darkness and illuminating the space for creative spirits to play in the void.
Our mission is to sustain this vigil in the virtual world; providing a beacon for actors and other artists to gather together and collaborate through mentorship, conversation and collective creation.
GhostLight is a digital theatrical training ground and digital performance space. This virtual space will allow established artists to mentor emerging and mid-career colleagues through online class rooms, placing and emphasis on live, two-way conversations between teachers and students. These offerings will take the form of multi-session studio classes, private coaching, intensive workshops, and our interview series entitled “Friday Night at the GhostLight.”
In addition to our mentorship platform, GhostLight will also function as an online theatre space, providing virtual rehearsal halls for artists across several disciplines and geographical barriers to collaborate and learn from each other on our digital platform. These collaborations will be an extension of a particular GhostLight classroom or a collective of like-minded artists interested in online creation.
Select GhostLight creations will be available for public viewing and linked to an online audience and eventually filmed in a studio through digital streaming and network partnerships.
