Performing With a Purpose

Performing With a Purpose

A workshop about dealing with hard topics and and social justice issues.

This class is based on scenes where you find yourself dealing with topics of race or socially and politically charged situations. The workshop will include discussions and scenes dealing with race, gender and other very personally sensitive areas. The workshop will cover how to move forward thoughtfully, respectfully and meaningfully when you find yourself there.

All under the guidance of the cast of Blackout.

Hard Topics

In this workshop, we will highlight what happens to us as performers when a scene becomes scary, offensive or insensitive and we freeze or lose ourselves. We explore some approaches to get agency back when we find ourselves somewhere uncomfortable, tools for improvising mindfully and finding a proactive voice for you and your show.

Performing With a Purpose

This workshop speaks directly to those who want to craft performances to directly encounter social justice issues. We will discuss the need for both caution and bravery, the importance of trust and sensitivity, and challenge attendees to expand their understanding of what serves as a social justice performance. This workshop will engage attendees in how to manage both the delicate nature of sensitive topics and the brutality of truth with honesty, creativity, and freedom, all while being your hilarious self. From the silly to the serious, we will learn to express ourselves safely to a public who is feeling uncertain of their own safety.
