Event description


This workshop has up to now only been available in-person, and now Alicia is facilitating it live, online! The first round went REALLY well, with folks experiencing high levels of connection and creativity.


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 online group of high-caliber humans, you will giggle, growl, and grimace your way to uncovering your authentic, powerful, and playful voice, creating a 6-minute performance, speech, story, or comic monologue, 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 you will "perform" online at the end of the workshop which you can invite your friends and family. (You GET to show off, online!)

EACH WEEK, the workshop includes things like embodied storytelling, 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 piece you can perform anywhere. Your Hero’s Journey begins here.
