Performing Beyond the Binary
With Roger Ellis and Adi Cabral
DATES: June 5th – June 26th Saturdays
TIME: 11am -2pm PDT
As artists, we are often taught to explore within the framework of the methodologies laid out before us. What was Stella Adler’s process as an actor? How did Mary Overlie develop their craft? What is Suzan-Lori Parks’ process for developing new work? In “Performing Beyond the Binary,” participants will cultivate their own process for creating material by engaging in trauma-informed, identity-conscious approaches to creative investigation. Over the course of four weeks, participants will develop expressive connections outside of prior methodologies, create narrative structures out of internal chaos, and compile the spectrum of their performative selves. These four weeks will culminate in a shared performance for an invited audience.
