The Helis Foundation is a Louisiana private foundation, established and funded by the William Helis Family. The Arts Funds of The Helis Foundation advance access to the arts for the community through contributions that sustain operations for, provide free admission to, acquire works of art, and underwrite major exhibitions and projects of institutions within the Greater New Orleans area.
The CAC is supported in part by a grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council. Funding has also been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, Art Works. The CAC is supported in part by a Community Arts Grant made possible by the City of New Orleans as administered by the Arts Council New Orleans.

While working as a performance company, students will learn the fundamentals of collaborative theater-making and artistic training. 

This workshop engages the students in a detailed approach of Theater Mitu’s training methodology of Whole Theater. Whole Theater is defined as a theatrical experience that is rigorously visual, aural, emotional, intellectual and spiritual—both in creation and in performance.

More about Whole Theater: This demanding physical training has been developed by extrapolating and synthesizing various trainings from a range of selected world theater traditions. These include but are not limited to: Japanese Noh, Kabuki, Bunraku and Butoh training; Thai Kohn, Drumming and Muay Thai training; Indian Kathakali, Kalaripayattu, and Mohiniattam training; Ethiopian Zayen training; Iranian Ta’zieh training; Peking Opera training; and Islamic/Sufi Whirling training. These root traditions and their training applications will be explored physically as a group. At the root of these investigations is the artist’s discipline. The class will investigate and identify lines of artistic and collaborative discipline in order to garner successful models of artistic process, exploration, and creation habits.
