This series of all-women classes is all about shaking off the world and diving into improv. The focus of the work will be on empowering women, overcoming common fears and exploring tips and tricks to having fun on stage (plus a strong emphasis on group bonding!).
Bold and Vulnerable with Sarah Marie Curry
August 27, 4-6:30pm at the Hideout Downtown
Use your visceral understanding of being human and being present to discover the scene as it is already happening. Focus on viewpoints work with Ann Bogart, dynamic staging and physicality, as well as listening, discovery and sincere response to moment over context and obligation. The improvisor will leave this workshop with a better understanding of their inherent charisma and energy on stage, as well as a healthy workout in stage craft, direction and mindfulness.

“Last night’s FREE Maestro Workshop for da Ladies was FUCKING awesome! It was amazing to be in a room of female improvisers and not give a shit about how we look/act/feel. It was very empowering and made me feel so proud to be part of such a supportive community. I hope this is a regular thing.” -Cristy Salinas
