Bilingual: A Movement Workshop
Join us in July for an exciting workshop for actors, directors, dancers, and anybody who likes to move their body!

In BILINGUAL, Jivko Jeliazkov – artistic director of Europe’s famed
Derida Dance Center – will share his award-winning techniques with New York theatre artists for the first time. Focusing on the relationship between physical language and verbal language, Bilingual will give participants new ways to access meaning and expression through the dual codes of body and text…whether in harmony or opposition.
Mr. Jeliazkov’s methods enable artists to unlock surprising possibilities between their physical selves and the text, the space, and other performers.  Bilingual will hand students the keys to unexpected depths of meaning in their future projects.

Margaret
Monday August 7 at 7:00PM

Drawn from Shakespeare’s War of the Roses tetralogy, this play follows Margaret d’Anjou from meek princess to fierce warrior, strategist, leader, and finally lone, mad woman. This boldly reframed political history gives focus to women who made great impact, yet held little agency. Margaret provides opportunities for meaty female roles, new female narratives, and a strong feminist perspective while using only Shakespeare’s original text.

Baal

Written by Bertolt Brecht when he was just 20 years old, Baal is the story of a provocative and daring young artist trapped by his own ambitions, hungry for new experiences, and a never ending desire to conquer it all.
