Improv Workshop: Gender on Stage with Amy Shostak

January 25, 2019 @ 4:45 pm - 6:45 pm

🔥Gender On Stage with Amy Shostak🔥


This workshop explores how gender often presents itself in improvisation, and in what ways can we honour, question or challenge concepts of gender on stage. We will experiment with subverting, commenting on, centring and de-centring character choices in relation to gender. The focus of this workshop will be on active character-focused scene work, but there will also be time for discussion. Being hosted at the Smash Comedy Fest, this workshop is open to all women, trans*, femme and genderqueer-identified performers with foundational improv training.

Friday 4:45pm-6:45PM, $40/person, Little Mountain Gallery

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Health officials in British Columbia and nationally have restricted all public gatherings in order to combat the spread of COVID-19 and closed all non-essential businesses.

Little Mountain Gallery is a shared community space and has supported our showrunners in choosing to cancel their performances to encourage social isolation and prevent the spread of this illness.

Our not-for-profit business model relies on regular rentals in the space and, due to these unprecedented circumstances, we are asking for donations to ensure we are able to remain in operation through this pandemic.

Little Mountain Gallery is following the City of Vancouver's updates on this issue.

We'll be updating this message as new information becomes available.
