Grand Guignolers Melodrama Workout/Workshop
PLAY BIG * PLAY FIERCE * PLAY TO SURVIVE
NOVEMBER 3 * NOVEMBER 11
Join us for a physically theatrical workout to get you out of your head and into your body. All levels welcome.
Melodrama is the most expressive of Western theatre forms, the one closest to the theatrical impulse, based in physical gesture, high stakes, big characters, big emotion states, spectacle, the struggle of virtue and evil, and all to music. The workshop is somewhere between Artaud's "athlete of the emotions" and cops & robbers. It's cathartic, powerful and FUN!
Sign up in advance for LIMITED SPOTS. We often have a waiting list. $18/workout. WED., NOVEMBER 3rd and/or 17th 7:30-10 at ArtWorks Theatre. 6569 Santa Monica Blvd., LA 90038. No parking in lot. Feel free to bring drinks for post-workout play.
