Dec 2010 Class Show
The Solo Performance Workshop is pleased to announce it's Spring 2011 class performances.
ABOUT THE SOLO PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP:
The Solo Performance Workshop, founded by W. Kamau Bell and Bruce Pachtman in 2005, is an 8-session course designed to support the development of professional level theatrical solo performance (aka, solo show or one-person show). Each participant creates a unique and personal 15-20 minute solo performance piece using a variety of writing and performance techniques. The Workshop culminates with a public performance where each participant's work is showcased.
The Workshop is recommended for performers of all disciplines, including actors, writers, comedians, spoken word artists, musicians and dancers. All levels of experience are welcome, from those who have never been on stage before to those preparing a piece for a professional production or audition. Members of the Workshop have gone on to perform their shows all over the Bay Area, Los Angeles, and New York.
ABOUT MARTHA RYNBERG (facilitator):
MARTHA RYNBERG came to solo performance on a whim in 2006 and has been hooked ever since. (Although, she thinks of her career as blossoming when she started dancing on the top of a lounge piano for virgin Margaritas - at the age of three.) In addition to creating several solo pieces of her own, she is the original director of the W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour. Under her watchful, collaborative, and supportive eye, "The Curve" garnered praise from nearly every major local print media source, including The San Francisco Chronicle (Four Stars), The SF Weekly (Recommended), The SF Bay Guardian (Critic's Pick), and The East Bay Express (Critic's Choice).
Martha's own work explores the intersections of inheritance, parenting across racial lines, internalized misogyny, and adoptionism. And she has been described as the creative love-child of Jim Carrey and Carol Burnett. Martha's current full length show is called "Lady Parts".
