Clown 1

Virginia Scott
Your clown is unique and specific to you, he is the regretless and enthusiastic expression of your comic nature, and he cannot be crafted but must be discovered! And once he is discovered he will weasel his way into every performance you give, bringing newfound abandon, specificity and playfulness.
In this class we will begin by strengthening the muscles necessary to prepare the performer to discover this clown. Through physically oriented exercises, games and improvisations we will begin to use the whole body in performance and find a unity of psychological and physical intention.


Dates
: September 30 - October 1, 10am-5pm each day.

(A deposit of $100 is required to secure space and is refundable until 9/16. Remainder of fee is due 9/23.)

The Ensemble Director: Creating Original Theater

Richard Crawford

This workshop addresses the role of Director in an ensemble setting. A seeming contradiction, how does a director inspire joint ownership of the generation of new material and at the same time maintain creative autonomy in order to sculpt the final product? We will look at the tools of devising where the traditional boundaries between actor/director director/writer are blurred and where the ensemble enriches the creation of original material, giving rise to a joint vision.

Dates:
October 20 - 22, time TBD
Fee: New Low Price! $250 (A deposit of $100 is required to secure space and is refundable until 10/6. Remainder of fee is due 10/13.)
Location: NOLA Rehearsal Studios, 250 W 54th St. btw Broadway & 8th Ave., Manhattan
