WALLZ: A Master Class and Performance Experience

November 6, 2021

1-4:30pm

$45/participant

Developing the tools that help actors do great work; body, voice, and imagination lead the way to productive collaboration. Through theatrical exercises that place an emphasis on development of organic movement and voice, the WALLZ workshop will address the theme of freedom vs. security.

What does it mean to be homeless?

Is there a difference between a "Home" and a "House"?

How do we build and maintain a home?

At the end of the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to present their exploration and discoveries around these questions through a free public performance and immersive experience for audience and performers alike.

OPEN TO: Middle and High School performers of all varieties

WHAT TO BRING TO THE WORKSHOP:

  • clothes you can move in
  • all black attire (for the concluding performance)
