Off Your Chest and Onto the Stage!
Thursday, March 5, 2015 - Thursday, May 7, 2015
Are you holding inside pent-up emotions about a fast transforming community landscape, evictions, police brutality... do you have powerful stories to share and just can't find the way to get them out... or have you been thinking about performing for a long time and never quite found the time or resources to do it...?
Galeria De La Raza and USF's Performing Arts & Social Justice Program proudly announce this unique arts & education project consisting of 10 (ten) free weekly Performance in Community class sessions,Thursdays from 3:00 to 4:00pm, from March 5 through May 7.
Classes are free and open to community members interested in learning introductory theatre/performance tools.
Starting with basic ensemble and individual exercises, and working in an inclusive and safe environment, participants will be guided through the dynamics required to release the expressive potential in their bodies, engage in creative storytelling, gain confidence to stand in front of an audience, and finally, structure a draft of a solo or collective performance piece.
No previous experience in performance required. Sessions will be conducted by USF professor Roberto Varea, and students from his Theater and Community Engagement course. Si hablas Español, te esperamos!
Registration is limited to 12 community participants.
If interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Yosi at 415-826-8009, or attend an information session on Sunday, February 22, 3:00pm, at Galeria de la Raza's Studio 24 (corner location).
