Stage Hackers provides the tools to produce your own work, become a more well-rounded performer, and wear the many hats that it takes to be a self-starting artist of the stage. Through in-depth round table discussions and interviews, we’ll uncover the process, problems, and hacks that lead to success. This show is for you, the emerging artist, performer, artistic director, producer, or arts educator. “Stage hacking” involves combining problem solving, research, creativity, and exploration to see what it takes to manifest a high quality production on the stage or any live performance. It’s the art of creative problem solving and finding unconventional ways to confront challenges. As people that work in the performing arts, we recognized missing links in our education that didn’t quite teach artists how to go beyond getting a contract from someone else. We are dedicated to helping people create and produce their own work, make it successful, build an audience, and make money doing it. We want to start a movement to help change the paradigm of the starving artist. Whether you are looking for success with directing, acting, playwriting, choreography, dance, physical theatre, dance theatre, devised theatre, music composition, crowdsourcing, social media and marketing, arts administration, production design, creative collaboration, entrepreneurship, arts education, creating the work that you want to create, or building your performance company, Stage Hackers is here to help you. Please SUBSCRIBE and leave us an honest review! It helps us out so much with ratings.

I just finished listening to all three episodes you guys have out so far (Pam, Roundtable and Galen) and I kept thinking as I was listening, “This is exactly what I need to hear right now” A dancer, creator and collaborator currently in the midst of my own creative process now, I spent most of my life purely performing other people’s work. I think that creating pieces of my own is the next stage in my evolution as an artist, though. I know a lot about dance technique, about PR and marketing, but it’s some of the themes you guys are talking about in terms of being a creator and collaborator (improvisation, starting with a seed) that I have needed to reach out for help with (including from other dancers or mentors who I respect), and I have to say, when I have reached out, it has been incredibly rewarding. I can’t wait to keep listening and would encourage you to bring in artists from throughout the disciplines. Much love, respect and gratitude, Gabba (your #1 fan!).

Like growth hacking … but for the stage!

This is a show that anyone involved in the performance arts will really benefit from. I love the term “creative entrepreneurship.” This show teaches it; and is also a very meta example of it at the same time.

Just What I Needed!!

This is just the kind is show I've been looking for!! Process oriented education about all aspects of the performance and production business! On topic, but personable enough to feel at home. Go Stage Hackers!!
