About this Event

The Myth Machine:

Improvised Explanations and Spontaneous Stories

In the real world, you want to be smart, you want to be funny, you want to be right... But this is Comedy! Let the real world rest while we say yes to imagination and collaboration. Create and perform outsized stories and explanations for the tiniest of events, building unexpectedly heroic characters, misunderstood villains and a landscape who's rules are dictated by the storytellers.

Storytelling exercises shape ideas into simple performance, and improv games help navigate this process with flexibility and good humor. Students collaborate to build and perform original myths, culminating in a performance at 5 pm, the Sunday after camp ends. This camp is particularly good for developing flexibility, taking risks and overcoming the need to be right or to "win."

Important to Note:

This is a Full Day camp (9 am to 4 pm) that includes a half day option (9 am to noon). Half Day students focus on creating work specifically designed for this session. Students who stay for the full day have the additional opportunity to work on special projects, play with friends under staff supervision or collaborate with other campers on performance work. All campers should bring a water bottle and snack. Full day campers should bring a lunch.

The performance for this class will be the Sunday following the final day of camp at 5 pm at ColdTowne Theater.
