What makes something funny and how do we write it? Find out on this fun, informative and dynamic workshop. This class focuses on the art of stand-up and how we might include clowning skills, and starting points such as myth, archetype and popular characters, to create strong, relatable and definable characters in a performance.
We will use physical language, emotional responses, models, and writing techniques to help generate believable characters. How might you include this new creation in an online or on-stage set?
The day will be structured by writing and editing material, practicing your newly discovered character (s) – followed by an end of day sharing of your ideas.
