Industry Listing, Workshop / Classes.

Zuppa Theatre Co. invites you to participate in one or both sections of this summer workshop series:

SEEK ELECTRICITY | a two-week acting intensive
August 4 to 14, 2015*
*There will be no session on Monday, August 3, due to the civic holiday.

How are audiences captivated, bodies engaged, texts animated, characters and scenarios brought to life? What can an actor do to light up a stage? Seek Electricity is designed for excited, aspiring actors and seasoned pros looking for increased voltage. Our approach to performance combines rigorous physical and vocal training, a spirit of restless play, and detailed work with text and action. We will explore techniques that we have applied across different genres and in theatres as small as living rooms and as large as the expansive outdoors. Electric theatre can go in many directions, but it begins for us with the enduring art of the actor.

You must find the spark before you can search for The Missing Theatre.

THE MISSING THEATRE | a two-week theatre-making intensive
August 17 to 28, 2015

How do you make a show as a group?

For 16 years we have worked to find the best answer to this question. Ideal for actors, directors, writers and designers, this workshop introduces techniques, exercises and games that enhance the collaborative process. We encourage surprise and risk-taking coupled with craft and rigour. The Missing Theatre is for aspiring theatre creators looking for new methods to employ and rules to break. After extensive coaching, participants will be handed the creative reigns, culminating in the presentation of a series of short performances.

There have been a zillion types of theatre. But one is missing – the one you make.
PLEASE NOTE:The Missing Theatre is open only to participants (past or present) of Seek Electricity.
