Drawing from plays by Middle Eastern and Middle Eastern American playwrights, this 9-week workshop will enhance the participants’ skills in improvisation, scene study and solo performance. The curriculum will begin with 3 sessions focused on improvisation, physical performance techniques, and stock charcaters rooted in Commedia dell Arte. Participants will apply those skills in the next 4 sessions towards dramatic text analysis, building a character, and physical story-telling. The participants will present their scenes at the final session which will be open to invited guests. By the end of the term, participants will have developed stronger improvisational skills, deeper understanding of dramatic character & text, and more confidence in self-expression.
No prior acting experience required.
Must be 18 or older to participate.
