Distill and ignite your entire life experience to create a concise and astonishing burst of original performance. In this course, writers will create and perform an original piece of performance art, suitable for a variety of venues: online, cabaret, theatre, film, gallery, and more. We will develop this work using various exercises to access the imagination, subconscious, personal history, and more. From there we will create a script, workshop the performance and finally present the finished work. Reveal your essential self in the moment-to-moment truths of performance. Students will leave the class with one original performance work and the tools to create others. The course culminates with an online Zoom presentation of student work on July 24.
This course is ideal for writers of every level: beginner, intermediate, and advanced.
