In 2007, Rumble created the Tremors Festival, originally a two-week run of plays created by emerging companies. In 2014 we devised a new model for Tremors that focused on providing mentorship to individual emerging artists rather than emerging companies.
Tremors is now a vehicle for emerging artists to build networks, receive professional mentorship, develop their craft and work on exciting plays. Each show will be directed, designed and performed by a company of emerging artists working with the guidance of professional mentors. Rumble provides discipline-specific mentorship from professional theatre practitioners to all participants.
