WORKSHOP: Pages, Stages, Stanzas and Sound Checks
Pages, Stages, Stanzas and Sound Checks:
Thoughts on Writing, Performance, and the Goodness In-Between.
This workshop will address ways that page work can transfer its energy and passion to stage. As writers, we have a somewhat different skill set than performers, but we can use the gifts we possess to create amazing stage work, as well. And no, you don't always have to memorize everything! :) Feel free to bring some original work that you might want to perform, hone, or discuss! Led by Ryka Aoki de la Cruz.
AND DON'T MISS RYKA'S SHOW ON 11/12!
