Solo Performance in the 21st Century
This basic workshop is designed for anyone interested in exploring one’s own voice and style in solo performance. In class, write and perform your own pieces using life experience as fodder and the tools of the actor/writer to bring that experience into a dramatic form. Also, experiment with using digital media—Facebook, vlogs, selfies, texting—as a form of performance. Write, act, react, and ultimately present your work in a final presentation. Come prepared to explore a basic question through writing, acting, and voice work.
