Congratulations to FF2 Media Associate Lindsy M. Bissonnette on her acceptance into the SDC (Stage Directors and Choreographers) Foundation’s 2017-18 Observership Class. As a member of this class, she is eligible to apply for directing observership and fellowship opportunities throughout the year as well as attend events and panel discussions.
The Observership Program provides early to mid-career directors and choreographers paid opportunities to observe work of master directors and choreographers as they create productions on Broadway, Off-Broadway and leading regional theatres across the country. Accepted members have access to the entire rehearsal process from first rehearsal through opening night.
“It’s a very exciting opportunity,” Bissonnette said. “The Observership program is an incredible opportunity to work with directors from all over the country, and I’m truly honored to have been chosen this year.” As master artists create new productions and revive classics, observers will get a first-hand experience of their techniques, disciplines, approaches and insights. “I have a very specific and technical way of approaching text and an improv-based method of approaching rehearsal, so the prospect of working with directors who work differently than me and who were trained differently than me is something I am really looking forward to.”
Associate Lindsy M. Bissonnette is a freelance director in New York City. She currently works in the development office of an Off-Broadway theatre, and writes plays, poetry, and sketch comedy. She joined the FF2 Media team in July of 2016 and absolutely loves helping female writers and directors get the word out about their upcoming films. She recently graduated with her MFA in performing arts, and before that received her BFA in Acting and Directing and a BA in Communication.
