Actors' Workshops
(Open to the public)


Building a Solo Performance
Workshop
Friday, Oct. 17, 2008, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Studio Theatre
This workshop will help participants learn strategies for creating solo performances. Participants are invited to stay for a special, Mercer-only encore of "Therese Raquin Desire" at 10 p.m. as part of the Late Night Series, a multimedia collaboration between Project Y Theatre Company and the New Orleans Theatre Experiment that premiered in New York last June. TRD is an original one-woman show about what happens when a silent and solitary woman decides to act on impulse and desire. Based on the famous title character of Emile Zola's novel, this innovative show mixes original sound, video, and choreography to give new life to one of literature's most surprising murderers.

Suzuki Voice and Movement Workshop
Saturday, Oct. 25, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., in PE225 (Dance Studio, 2nd floor of Phys. Ed. Bldg)
Explore the acting system of Tadashi Suzuki, one of the most vital and unique forces in Japanese and Western theatre. Led by Takahiro Yamamoto, an internationally-recognized performer, this free workshop is a must for actors who are interested in the beauty and poignancy of movement and its ability to convey a story. Wear cloths you can move in easily; bring water and a towel.
