Solo Performance Workshop @ Urban Grace: The Downtown Church
May 28 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

This workshop is for anyone who is interested in creating a theatrical solo performance. You can be an actor, dancer, circus artist, musician, storyteller or anyone that wants to do something different.

The only requirement is that you have an IDEA. It can be a prop, a movement, a word, a thought, etc.

Michelle Matlock will lead the group through a creative process that she has used to develop her solo work for the past 20 years (Check out her projects and results here ). This process includes theater games, exercises and discussions that provoke, material development, build characters, motivation, storytelling, stage presence, writing and of course just getting on your feet and starting.

It all starts with what motivates you! Creating an original new work is a journey that requires a safe and open space with constructive feedback. This workshop is exactly that and much more.

Michelle will lead 1 three-hour workshop per week for 9 weeks. During the 10th week, each participant will present up to 10 minutes of new material at a Work In Progress Showcase (free invite-only, family and friends) at Black Box Theater (In the Pantages Theater building).

Each participant will get a digital video of their own performance.

8 students required. 10 max.

WORKSHOP STARTS TUESDAY MAY 28TH 6:30 PM TO 9:30 PM AND CONTINUES EVERY WEEK ENDING ON TUESDAY JULY 23, 2019. Each workshop is designed to build on the last one, so please plan on attending all 9 dates.

The Work-In-Progress presentation will be the following week after the last workshop. Most likely on a Sunday afternoon.

Local Uplift: Using Social Media to Find Customers and Community @ Riandi Photography
May 29 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join Allison Bishins Consulting for a special, one-time workshop on Using Social Media to Find Local Customers and Build Community.

The first hour is an overview training on why – and how – to use social media (Instagram and Facebook, primarily) as a LOCAL tool, even if you don’t consider yourself to be a local-focused business. How do you find customers that are near you? How do you create a local support network via these online tools? The second hour will be a group discussion and exploration of challenges to finding local customers online, tackling specific issues you have, and exploring potential avenues for different kinds of businesses (e.g. hashtags, location pins).

This workshop is open to all types of business owners, advocates, entrepreneurs, non-profits, dreamers, etc. This course is not an introduction to social media, but as long as you know how to post on Instagram and Facebook, this training will be helpful!

Early bird ticket price through May 19: $30
Regular ticket price: $40

This is not a kid friendly event and there is no onsite childcare.

Scholarships may be available. Email inquiries to allisonbishins@gmail.com.
