Improv Workshop: Gender on Stage with Amy Shostak

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

🔥Gender On Stage with Amy Shostak🔥

PART OF SMASH COMEDY FEST

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
