*** SOLD OUT *** Solo Comedic Performance Class –Saturday’s starting Oct. 19th – Dec. 7th
Solo, comedic performance can be terrifying, but it can also be thrilling. If you’ve ever had the desire to write and perform a piece for yourself or even write a full-blown, one-person show, this is the class for you. Over the course of 8 weeks, we will write, workshop, and ultimately perform solo pieces. Whether it’s storytelling, sketch comedy, character work, short plays or something else altogether, each student will leave the class with a fully realized 5-10 minute, heavily work-shopped and polished piece to perform. While we will run through exercises each week that focus on sharpening performance techniques, the class will be heavily geared towards the writing and performance of each individual piece. We will go through the iterative process of writing an outline, then a script, and then taking it to the stage for feedback from both the instructor and your fellow classmates. The class will be capped off with a showcase open to the public, at which students will perform their pieces in their final forms.
This course runs for 8 weeks, and each class is 3 hours long. Space is limited to 6 students.
Please be advised this class will include some light to moderate physical activity and require time spent outside of class independently writing and editing.
