A Musical Theater Workshop
Together we will develop a musical theater piece to share on the last evening of the conference. Story, lyricism, stagecraft, improvisation, singing and acting are all components we weave.
The workshop is in three parts: creation, development, and performance. Whether you have prior experience in music or theater is secondary; what is required is willingness to play, to stretch beyond your previous limits. Our time together will enhance your experience as a creative individual while being part of a creative team.
Translating relevant personal and global issues into music and theater via the avenue of the imagination, is a powerful method for learning about ourselves and each other. This is a way of deepening one's sense of presence, being open to one's authenticity and life-force. The creativity and courage it takes to originate and deliver a theater performance is somehow parallel to the courage it takes to live out one's life on the world stage. In this workshop you are invited to discover a new dimension of yourself.
