 TEENS IN THE BURLINGTON AREA

Let’s make an original show this Spring. Many thanks to Senator Sanders, Vermont Afterschool, and The Media Factory for opening this portal to possibility. SIGN UP is now open!

In The Circle of Future Performance we envisioned new opportunities in the performing arts and heard a wise wishlist from participating high school & college students. We heard your call for mentorship, spaces to gather and rehearse, and opportunities to collaborate with artists & community members outside of your own school/town… so we are offering EPOCH GENERATION as a new program! Senator Bernie Sanders has secured federal dollars to expand access to new & innovative afterschool programs in our state and EPOCH GENERATION was selected to be one of the 39 programs that will benefit from this support! Thanks Senator Sanders! Open to area teens, EPOCH GENERATION is a supported space to generate new narratives for the new epoch of performance. SIGN-UP IS NOW OPEN!

what we OFFER

programs & workshops

With a hands-on, team-driven approach, ITA uses storytelling & the performing arts to co-create with and within community. We do not create art that sets us apart ─ we do not create art where the most talented shine. We create art that galvanizes collective vision. Put simply … we make projects that build connections! Our workshops are designed to be inclusive of learners of all ages and newcomers to the arts. 

Productions & Events

Prioritizing participatory events, ITA facilitates the creation of original works. We do not gather in traditional performing arts models of crowds and spectacle. We gather to see each other. Bolstering community with powerful combinations of storytelling, music, performing and visual arts, our teaching artists are problem-solvers that work with available resources to realize meaningful productions.

Community-Based Projects

In this new reality, where technology mediates and separates our social lives more than ever, ITA creates supported spaces for collective imagining. These spaces are in schools, parks, neighborhoods, and public institutions ─ shared spaces to serve as creative common grounds. We invite communities to use our services to enhance existing curriculum, programming, festivals, or events.

As artists and educators, In Tandem Arts is committed to racial justice, economic justice, and anti-oppression in our schools, communities, and society at large. All of our programs are relationship-based and prioritize collaboration, community-building, and inclusion over a final product. Therefore, the work is not easy, it requires patience and willingness to embrace the unknown. We are indebted to and extend gratitude to the black and indigenous visionaries that have set an enduring example of how to stay with the work for the long game.
