Physical Comedy Workshop with Christine Lesiak
"Be interested, not interesting"
Tuesday, Thursday & Sunday afternoons, May 2 - May 11, 2017
Dance Code Studios 10575 115 St. NW, Edmonton, Alberta
Open to all performers with some previous clown or physical theatre training.
Join Toy Guns Dance Theatre students in an exploration of the fundamentals of non-verbal and silent comedy. We will explore solo, and group work, and basic slapstick techniques. Students will gain a better understanding of giving and taking focus, comedic timing, rhythm, and relationship to audience. Students will put the techniques into practice to develop a short, devised scene.
Christine teaches regularly in Toy Guns Dance Theatre’s school, and has taught within the Drama Department at the University of Alberta, at Edmonton Digital Arts College, and privately.
