Workshop: This is a laboratory and training workshop for the actor to
deepen their inner sense of the body within the macro structure of gesture. Solo
and group exercises are implemented to assist in bringing the physicalemotional-
imaginative state of being into the foreground and free us from social
and mental conditioning. We bring the lab to a close with the performance of a
basic story structure: arrival–encounter–transformation–exit.
The aim here is for the actor-performer to experience clarity and playfulness
independent of artifice, character, or script.
About the instructor:

comic and dramatic influences, verbally and nonverbally. He’s toured the six
Georgspalast variete theaters in Germany, played the roles of Sgt. Cadwallader in

The Festival will consist of two weekends of 8 short plays per week, in which two ensembles of six actors, Week 1 & Week 2 will perform a total of 16 plays. Audience members will choose their top four favorites each night.
Then the third weekend will feature the plays chosen by the audience from each of the previous weeks for a satisfying revisit to the most popular performances.
Many of these 10-14 minutes plays were written by local Valley playwrights and range from the comic to the serious to the absurd! Festival Ticket passes offer flexible discounted attendance for all three weekends!
