Education

Collaboration.  Risk-taking.  The pleasure of performance.

Pig Iron's education programs offer some of the most unique and comprehensive approaches to performance training in America.  Working within our two-time OBIE Award-winning ensemble's core creative tenets - physical character work and actor-generated playmaking - Pig Iron has instructed hundreds of students in universities, colleges, and high schools; in our own professional workshop series; and in our training program for leaders in the corporate and nonprofit sectors.
