Upcoming Action Theater Offerings
This year, Mary Rose and Nathaniel Holder of Portland Action Theater will offer various class series for beginner and continuing Action Theater students. Practitioners from all over the spectrum of performing arts are welcomed and encouraged to participate.
Mary and Nathaniel's style of teaching is playful and welcoming to all. They love to share improvisation with others and encourage community within the classroom. This work goes deep and tends to create a strong feeling of connection between practitioners.
Jan 13--Beginner Action Theater 5-class series--
This will be a refresher for some and provide essential tools for novice practitioners. We will discuss the terminology used in Action Theater and do beginner exercises. This is a great class to take if you are planning to work with Ruth Zaporah in April or if you are interested in taking other Action Theater classes.
Date/time TBA--Continuing Action Theater 5-class series
We will go deeper with the work and build on the exercises and lessons of the beginner series.
