@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 breath and inspiration and access and passion and commitment at s&co

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 language rather than visual, accessibility, variety at stratford, ont. also, experience and beauty, relationships soaking in.

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 have grown, 60 mil budget, 3500 seats. Community support strong at Stratford.

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 Antoni says they are wrestling with bare stage idea.

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 Utah says keeping the mission in the daily routine is about coming back to the core. Find sounding boards to keep f/blowing up bldgs

@gmudge: Apologies, guessed wrong on the name, Anita Gaffney?. Stratford #STA12

@Jimhelsinger: Review of Roger Rees at #STA12 “clever, light-as-a-feather… with literary punch” #Shakespeare http://t.co/aKTnvPNM

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 Anita f/Stratford says forming the seasons annually is a regular opportunity to engage the mission.

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 keywords: engaging and educating, going out and bringing them in. Destination means keeping them busy all the time at utah

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 body came in as important for s&co, asks Tina how she engages body each day. She says it’s hard, can’t punch someone as a manager

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 education part of mission since 1953 at Stratford.

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 Stratford mission: excellent and innovation in production. 11 artistic directors in their history. Training is 2 years long.

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 it appears that the core founding principles are still the drivers for all of the panel theatres

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 Antoni f/Stratford ont: founded to rescue a rr town that the rr was abondoning.

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 Utah describes touching base on mission and goals with founders at regular meetings.

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 Stratford says describing the Issuing at length to patrons and staff regularly keeps mission at the front. his “letters are epic”

@ASC_Amy: Great live tweeting of Founder Plenary Session at #STA12 by @ASC_Sarahe. Follow along right now. #2amt

@gmudge: Prosser, double-edge to founding principles: Reconfigure the stage? “But that’s where Alec Guiness played R3!” @stratfest #tradition #STA12

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 Utah says innovate by getting clearer, telling the story better. Going back to Shakespeare…rarer shakespeare.

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 Jemma f/muse of fire ask for elaboration on innovation. S&co says:we work on ourselves, find new things in rehearsal & learning self

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 we need to be as innovative as as our founders, but can be stymied by our tradition.-stratford

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 shakes didn’t believe in innovation according to our definition but dove in deeper to improve on what is there

@gmudge: Tina: Sh innov. by going deeper than source material. Mulcahy: walk old ground to walk the new. Vaughan: respect past, hold future #STA12

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 walk the old ground to break the new ground: innovation in shakespeare.

@_plainKate_: I touch our core principals in trying to awaken in othet people the lightbulb that once went off for me. ~ David Prosser #STA12

@gmudge: ‘New’ vogue away from literature, continental Europe, incl Sh, too linear. But still taught. Jerzy Limon, Gdansk Sh, Poland. #STA12

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 continental Europe fights direct productions of shakes and traditional acting, so gdansk must fight on two fronts: translation&acting

@ladyjshepherd: Malvolio carries iPhone, receives tweets instead of a letter #sta12

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 audience members in Poland turned off by both the acting and adaptations, so gdansk is trying to get them back.

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 brazil is not just a country of football and carnival; it is a country of shakespeare! -mauro ( @amshakes’ mentored)

@ASC_Sarahe: #STA12 difficult to translate into portuguese, uses aboriginal dance and fights in their prod.
