Solo House Workshop Spring 2014
I am now participating in “Solo House”: an interactive performance workshop space where over the course of 8 weeks I will write, develop and perform (in front of a live audience!) a 15-minute solo performance piece. The instructor is Lisa Marie Rollins, who is very dynamic, and an excellent performer.
Solo House is facilitated in a workshop setting, where each week I receive individual time on stage and feedback on my script in development. There are weekly writing assignments and creative support to help my find your voice, creating a story arc, strong characters, and experimenting with the space of the stage.
There will be two guest artists visiting the class to share their expertise on body choreography / movement and acting for the stage. And during this time, I’ll be attending solo performances to get a better understanding of what this medium is all about.
On April 28, all workshop participants will perform 15-minute finished pieces at Stage Werx at 446 Valencia St. in San Francisco. Maybe this is my new encore career?
