How do we as artists bring our individual experience and perspective into conversation with other artists to make something that is more than the sum of its parts? The "Share and a Show Workshop" is a crash course on how to do exactly that. Join Ross Harris Sunday, August 18 from 11am-4pm in a workshop that will focus on the importance of ensemble, juxtaposition as a tool for creation, rigor in making artistic choices, and most importantly taking risks, making mistakes and making adjustments. This workshop is for ages 16+.
Every participant is asked to bring in something that holds personal meaning for them. These “somethings” will then be used as a starting point for creating a new and unique show. The show will not be for an audience but rather to explore the creative process from sourcing ideas to workshopping. All experience levels welcome!
WHEN & WHERE
Sunday, August 18th | 11am-4pm
Helgeson Learning Lab Theatre, 710 Sundial Drive, Waite Park
There is no cost to participate and no need to register ahead of time. Just show up!
WHAT TO BRING
The “something” can be an object, a piece of text, or even a short song or dance. Really, the “something” can be just about anything so long as it can be easily brought into the lab; there will be a bluetooth speaker available. Towards the beginning of the workshop everyone will get 5 minutes to explain the story or meaning of their “something”.
WHAT TO WEAR
Clothes you feel comfortable moving around in.
