Making Art Smart
Throughout the course of Collective Hole’s artistic and community development, the company has become increasingly interested in addressing the road blocks and challenges involved in making independent art in 21st Century New York.  In an effort to distill its findings and instill a dialogue amongst its colleagues and community members, in 2008 CHP developed an essay, “Making Art Smart,” to reflect upon its experiences and illustrate its thinking.

CHP Dialogues

In the Autumn of 2009 as part of CHP’s ongoing interest in sharing the process of making theatre, Stacey C. Rivera sat down for the first of several dialogues with Paul Sapp and Brian Morvant.  Their initial conversations centered around each of their backgrounds, work and interest in CHP.  She also interviewed Rebecca V. Nellis via email about the origins of CHP, her creative process and the company’s recent transitions.
