       The Knot: Theatre & Hope Entwined
         Albany Barn, Fall 2017 

Devised theatre is a collaborative process that stretches the imagination by challenging performers to not only bring roles to life, but to create content and structure through group exploration. Stephanie Weber-Remmert guided our small group with aplomb on the maiden voyage of this contingent’s discovery of what hope means to them. Through a blend of narrative and abstract perspectives, I feel that we had successfully facilitated a dialogue with the audience that was meaningful, thought-provoking, and entertaining.

Working with Stephanie was to create genuine moments. She helped to guide toward
the truth of the scene. I would most certainly work with her again.....JHK
