What Does Commedia Look Like Today? with Sarah Agnew
Monday, November 5 | 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. 
Cost: $65
(Payment plans ans scholarships are available!) 

This workshop will be an exercise in examining classic stock commedia characters and exploring how they operate in today’s world. We will approach the research with folly and physicality in the pursuit of our own beautiful stupidity. Expect improvisation and a lot of movement. Be dressed for curiosity and a willingness to flop. 
Prerequisite: Actor training and experience performing in professional and semi-professional productions. A basic understanding of Commedia dell’arte is a plus. Capacity: 15
