“Being Yourself” Onstage - Techniques to frame personal and found stories in a theatrical context.
This workshop uses creation techniques that focus on the depth of finding simplicity and honesty onstage, both in performance and in the collection of performance material. The workshop mixes elements of clown training with journalistic techniques as well as a sharp focus on tempo, simplicity and finding the essential in a story. Participants are challenged to be intimate, adventurous with form and to "find the funny".
Good for performers, writers and theatre-makers interested in adapting biographical material for the stage.
We offer this workshop in a variety of lengths, using various creation forms and techniques and are adaptable to teaching to a variety of levels of experience. Please contact anita@thechoptheatre for more detail.
