Event description

Description

IN TIMES OF CHALLENGE, ART, laughter, and vulnerability bring us all strength. We are literally uplifted by one another, and we are reminded of our wholeness when we are in the presence of those who dare greatly to say what we're all thinking. (Please, just say it. We're sitting here literally twiddling our thumbs, waiting for you to give it to us.)

Solo Showdown Testimonials

IF YOU'RE FEELING CALLED to share a Moth-style story about overcoming your fear of snakes, or create a standup routine about bi-polar bears, or a TEDx Talk about the power of K-Pop, or, hey, a funny and inspiring call to peaceful revolution for equality, let's get it going on! (Can you feel the rousing? There's rousing happening!)

IN A SUPPORTIVE, intimate group of high-caliber humans, you will giggle, growl, and grimace your way to uncovering your authentic, powerful, and playful voice, creating a 10-minute performance from scratch. You will be held, guided, and inspired by Alicia and by one another to "birth" a piece that you will be PROUD of, which your friends and family can come see and celebrate. (You GET to show off!)

EACH WEEK, the workshop includes things like improv exercises, supportive discussion about your piece and time on stage to create. It’s one part comedy, one part group therapy, one part alchemy. (All parts good.)

COME FOR the knock-down, drag-out, full self-expression with the full range of human emotion. Stay for the fun and connection. Leave with a 10-minute piece you can perform anywhere. Your Hero’s Journey begins here.
