Create your own 2 minute comedy sketch in one day!
On the theme of feminism, Deborah & China will guide you through a days workshop in finding your voice, celebrating your body & reconnecting to your inner child through clown & buffon: The Events Space at Hamilton House.
Dec 9th, 10am -7pm.
Open to all!
This day workshop is designed to empower you through both movement & song – alongside their debut, devised, absurd physical comedy show ‘Queen Cunt – Sacred or Profane? playing at The Wardrobe Theatre on the 29th & 30th Sept. ‘17: A joyful and anarchic look at what it is to be a woman in today’s world.
Both women & men are welcome to this workshop: They will invite you to explore feminsm & womanly-ness through creating sketches on your chosen aspect of the theme. Whether you are a man trying to get your head around feminism, a gender-fluid person who thinks its all a load of old fashined delineation, or a woman who wishes to re-define herself beyond the ridiculous limitations society sets around what it is to be female. Deborah & China will nutrute & guide your curiosity – to create a short sketch by the end of the day.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
Participants can expect to discover physical comedy techniques based in Clown & Buffon styles, as well some improv comedy games to warm up. There will be an exploration of vocal techniques & song for those leaning towards cabaret style sketches. Throughout the day there will be partner work, solo work, tailored feedback and group exercises. Culminating in a performance sharing at 5:30pm of all of YOUR VERY OWN SKETCHES.
The series will increase confidence, nurture freedom in movement, body & voice, and celebrate the multiplicity of stories and perspective of those who attend.
Please bring movement clothes, a picture/object/quote/song which is your inspiration & 1 prop of your choice, as starting points for your creative process.
