Course Title
Creating Solo Performances

Description of Course:

Students will develop original solos – either as live performance or as video, audio or animation projects.
We will practice techniques and exercises that can inspire the creation and performance of new works.

This course is appropriate for both advanced artists and also for beginners with no experience.

Participants may choose to develop work in any genre (drama or comedy, screenplay, fiction, nonfiction, poetry, biography, autobiography, song, adaptation, translation). Each project will develop its own form of performance (theater, video, multi-media, reading, performance art, installation, audio, music, dance, puppetry, visual art).

Participants may decide perform their own work or to collaborate with others.

We will also watch videos and study various examples of solo performance.

This course is taught by an artist whose theater and multi-media work has received international recognition.
