OPEN Indy's 2019 visiting artist, Molly Brennan, joins artists from NoExit Performance and Indianapolis Movement Arts Collective for a two-night physical comedy showcase!|
Molly Brennan, named "Chicago's Queen of Mischief and Mayhem" by American Theatre Magazine, is a physical comedian who specializes in clown and devised performance. Represented by Paonessa Talent, Molly has been teaching students the art of clown and devising for nearly 20 years at the University of Illinois Chicago, Actors Gymnasium, DePaul University, the University of Chicago and all over the U.S.
OPEN Indy is an advanced arts education program that invites nationally recognized visiting artists to Indianapolis to provide accessible, professional, and innovative training opportunities to performing artists in Indianapolis. Produced jointly by NoExit Performance and Indianapolis Movement Arts Collective, the event has two main components: first as a platform for continued education and training for artists in Indianapolis, and second, a showcase for our audience to witness this training applied to public, professional performance.

Our organizations recognize artists in Indianapolis are hungry for opportunities to grow their practice and learn new techniques, says NoExit Executive Director Lukas Schooler. While there are a few institutions in Indianapolis that offer classical training in the performing arts, OPEN Indy supplements this training by offering cutting-edge, cross-disciplinary, professional workshops from artists outside of our community, and in many cases, from outside our demographics. It is important for our artists to be exposed to contemporary methods of creating performance work in order to advance the creation of new performance work in Indianapolis.
This year, OPEN Indy is being supported by the Arts Council of Indianapolis and the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.
