Under the Table presents a series of three workshops in New York City with Josh Matthews and Sarah Petersiel! We're excited to offer workshops in our areas of expertise and affinity. All proceeds go towards Under the Table's Summer 2010 Canadian Tour. Canada or bust!
UNDER THE TABLE 101: THE ENSEMBLE EXPERIENCE
Saturday April 10, 12-3pm
In this workshop we share our process of devising physical and comedic work. We'll explore: generating material for shows and pieces; shaping that material; being a good comedic partner; and building a productive and joyful ensemble.
Great for actors, writers, directors, and collaborative artists of all kinds.
Saturday May 8, 12-3pm
Join us for a look at teaching circus skills to young people and adult beginners. Includes introducing students to juggling equipment, tumbling and spotting, and circus-centered ensemble games. We'll also touch on building up to a culminating circus performance.
Great for teachers/teaching artists, people who'd like to acquire some circus basics, and anyone with a fancy name.
Date TBA (sometime in June)
Enter the realm of theatrical clown in this exploratory workshop! Be patently uncool! Follow your impulses to make mischief! Pursue delight by whatever means necessary! Admit to what's really going on! Be profoundly present!
Great for dentists. And actors/clowns/people interested in unleashing the power of their ridiculousness.
