Commit to the Choice: How to Get the Most out of Every Moment You Play
with Kelly Buttermore and Justin Peters
Sunday, June 9, 4-6:30pm
There’s a world of possibility inherent in every single choice we make on stage. So why do we sometimes abandon our initial choices—or, worse, play them half-heartedly? In this positive, high-energy workshop, Justin Peters and Kelly Buttermore will help you stop judging yourself on stage and start trusting your instincts. You’ll learn how to maximize your scenework by recognizing and affirming the choices that you’ve already made, and wringing every bit of value out of those choices before moving on.
Kelly Buttermore and Justin Peters are two of America’s top independent improvisers. As the duo From Justin to Kelly, they spend most of their time on tour, performing and teaching at theaters and festivals around the country; since 2014, they have performed and taught over 300 shows and workshops in 27 different states, the District of Columbia, Canada, and international waters. Their signature form is the Walter, a minimalistic monoscene that emphasizes silence, eye contact, and total commitment to the moment. Off stage, they promote a DIY ethos that encourages improvisers to find their own voices and own their own work. They are based in New York City, where they are the founders of Countdown Theater, a roaming pop-up improv collaborative. They are also the producers of the Countdown Improv Festival, the only national improv festival dedicated exclusively to trio, duo and solo improv. They spend a lot of time in the car, talking about the radio. www.fromjustintokelly.org | facebook.com/fromjustintokellycomedy
