Paid Workshop #2 Theater Grottesco: Silent Storytelling

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In 18th century France, as an effort to rein in the sacrilege of theater, a ban was placed on the spoken word in public places, except by the church. The theater community responded by developing pantomime blanche, a style of silent story-telling. A story told today might contain devices from film including pans, close-ups, and pull- backs, where the actors are performing in miniature while creating full scenes through the use of sound and the portrayal of objects. Participants should come ready to move at the ability they are able to; in loose fitting plain colored clothing (no advertising!), hair pulled back and jewelry off. We start on time and prefer to work barefoot.
