The Long Dark Night
Sometimes its fun to be weird.
Theatre (and improv!) isnt about normal people doing normal things, its about extraordinary people doing the strangest of things. But dipping into those areas of ourselves can be difficult. In this course, we will concentrate on the darkest and weirdest of things in order to take away their power over us.
For each of us, there are different things which we feel uncomfortable playing, which we do not want to think about or be seen as. This course is about looking under the bed, facing our fears in performance and taking control of the material that scares us. We want to be able to play and own these scenes, examine the depths of human depravity and suffering in a safe and supportive environment without feeling out of control or exploited. In fact, we want to enjoy it!
So come play scenes of people living the worst times of their lives and doing the worst things possible. Come play murderers and their victims, corrupt politicians and licentious bishops.Come be your worst self.
Somewhat obviously, this course comes with a warning. Much of the content may be unpleasant and even offensive, but we believe that through honesty and examination, we will journey into the underworld to bring back the treasure, and be stronger for the journey.
This is an experimental short course that we hope to extend next year.
Please check the date and title of this event carefully as we are unable to issue any refunds except in case of cancellation.
