Claire Porter:
Text & Movement
June 27
In this workshop we will explore ways of incorporating movement with text. Everyday we move while speaking but rarely do we examine and amplify how we move. This workshop will begin with one movement idea/action, and then through writing and playing, we will tease out many possible variations for both movement and language. Then we will put it all back together, edit, and then perform what we have created for each other. For all ages and abilities.

 

Sarah Elizabeth Greer:
“WRITE” YOUR LIFE: The Power of Turning Trauma into Art
June 28
Participants will learn about transforming one’s own experience into a stage play. We will begin by reading samples from actual dramatic texts, to analyze how playwrights tell stories from their own lives. Part of the workshop will focus on how to overcome the stage fright while telling your own stories publicly, and about theatre’s therapeutic aspect.

Suzanna Geraghty:
Creating Comedy
July 1
How fast is the speed of fun? It’s fast and comes from our raw, pure, uncensored impulse. It is the energy of the comic world. What makes a character funny? What makes a situation funny? Through the use of improvisation and clown techniques, students will be encouraged to step into the comic world and discover their own unique comic rhythm, imagination and potential. In groups they’ll create comic characters and invent short scenes.

 

Alfredo Tauste & Rafael Abolafia:
Movement and Objects
July 2
The goal of this workshop is to motivate the students to create a personal dramaturgy throughout the movement in relationship with the body and the space. The objects in the space will bring a story that embodies life and memories. We will analyze how the objects impact scenic choices and deliberate on choosing props and set pieces for a solo show. By means of creative and dynamic exercises, we will develop with the performers the enactment of an intimate drama. NOTE: participants should bring three objects to play with during the workshop (no personal or valuable items, please).
