with Company of Fools artist Chris Carwithen
Monday, November 9, 2020 - 6:00 PM
If you could tell a story about life today, what would you share? The global health crisis has changed us all. Who are you now? Use this time of worldwide disruption to express yourself and connect with others by sharing your personal experience through the art of performance. This two-day workshop will provide a safe space to discover our inner narrative through the exercise of monologue writing and performance.
On day one, participants will learn the building blocks of monologue creation and begin crafting an original monologue. On day two, participants will discuss and workshop their pieces, culminating in the opportunity for each participant to perform their newly created monologue with the class.
This is a two-day workshop that takes place on Mon, Nov 2, from 6–8pm & Nov 9 from 6–9pm at the Liberty Theatre, Hailey.
Cancellation Reimbursement Deadline: Oct 19, 2020
