Btw, Paco Fish & Ariel are starting a series of workshops at the end of this month. If you’re interested in public performance, check them out. Paco modeled for us last December (you can find the photos in the blog.)
Our next Dr. Sketchy’s is August 17th btw, and after that we should be back to our normal scheduling! Tomorrow or Monday we should have the photos up from our first session at Windup too.
Here’s the copy for Paco and Ariel’s workshop…

Learn how to entertain, enchant, and tease your audience. This 4-part workshop will provide tips and techniques for creating comedy and enhancing emotional expression.

Week 1: Sunday, August 23rd: Dynamic Expression
So you always wanted to be an actor. Learn how to access and express different emotions on stage. We will provide exercises for getting into character, learning to respond to other actors on stage, and tapping into your emotional reservoir.

Don’t you know everyone wants to laugh? This workshop explores how to make your audience laugh, relax, and have fun. We will study the work of famous comedians and provide exercises to improve your physical comedy.
Week 3: Sunday, September 6th: Getting Into Character
Participants will come with a character piece in mind and music they’d like to perform to. We will provide constructive feedback and work on some exercises for establishing and strengthening the persona you’ve chosen.

Final critique. We’ll also talk about stage makeup, costuming, and ways to relax and overcome last minute nervousness before going on stage.
