Making and Moving: A Workshop for Creators

Everything moves—from a color to a building, from a painting to a poem. In this workshop, learn to explode expectations of the theatrical space and use the human body to tell stories in new ways. 

Using collaborative theater-making methods, participants will acquire skills for dynamic storytelling. We will explore the movement and rhythm of the world around us and translate them to the stage using only the human body as our tool. Each class will culminate in the creation and sharing of a new theatrical piece. 

Makers and creators from all disciplines and experience levels are invited to challenge conventions of the modern stage.

This workshop takes place over the course of four sessions:

November 4 | 6:30-9pm
November 11 | 6:30-9pm
November 18 | 6:30-9pm
November 25 | 6:30-9pm

All sessions take place at the Pig Iron Studios, 1417 N. 2nd St. 

While this workshop is free of charge, participants are required to commit to all four workshop sessions. Participants will be asked to provide a $50 deposit, to be refunded at the end of the fourth session. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Minimum age is 18. 

Workshop led by Connor Hogan, Christine Octavia Shaw, and Jacqueline Libby with support from Emmanuelle Delpech and Sarah Sanford.
