Making Things and Breaking Things
Instructor: John Serpico
Making Things and Breaking Things is a workshop designed to add fun and engaging physical improvisation techniques to your performance toolbox. The workshop will have three areas of study - object work, silent improvisation and building environment - and has been designed so that everything you learn can be added to whatever improvisation you do.
By the end of Making Things and Breaking Things, you'll be able to feed the eyes of your audience as well as you feed their ears!
Please wear comfortable clothing and sturdy (no open toe) shoes to move around in.
