A physical theater workshop series for working artists of all disciplines:

Are you looking for new ways to create source material? How do you locate source material? How do you transform it into your art form? How do you translate it for an audience?

In this three part physical theater workshop series, Deborah Slater will draw on her 30 years of experience to address these questions, providing structure, guidance and support for you to experience and learn new ways of creating work for audiences. You will create new material each session, walking away with specific, repeatable tasks you can use in your own creative process. You will dive in quickly and deeply using tools of writing, moving and vocalization. You will get out of your own way, developing characters, adding props, and building out your pieces. You will learn how to jump off the edge of a cliff, dive into the fresh water below, and not drown.

Are you ready to do experiments you never thought to try? Are you ready to end up somewhere you didn’t expect to be?

We’ve got an awesome early bird special for one week only, through Wednesday, March 4th, so register today!
