Solo Performance Workshop @ Urban Grace: The Downtown Church
Jul 16 @ 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.

THE QUEEN (1968) (Pride Film Series) @ The Grand Cinema
Jul 17 @ 1:45 pm – 7:55 pm

Join us at The Grand Cinema for a screening of THE QUEEN (1968), restored just in time for our annual Pride Film Series on Wednesday, July 17 at 1:45pm and 6:45pm in partnership with Tacoma Pride Festival. Join us as we celebrate diversity through these independent films that highlight LGBTQ+ experiences and stories.

In 1967, Jack a drag queen known as Sabrina is the mistress of ceremonies at a national drag queen contest in New York City. The camera goes behind the scenes, recording the rehearsals leading up to the contest, the conversations in the dressing room (about draft boards, sexual identity and sex-change operations, and being a drag queen), and the jealousies that emerge before and after the competition. Jack introduces us to Richard, a young man who becomes Jack’s protégé. As Miss Harlow, Richard enters the contest. One of his principal competitors is Miss Crystal, who’s from Manhattan. Who will win the crown?

Happy Hour Floats @ Uncharted Waters Float Center
Jul 19 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Originally developed in the 1950s as a way to study consciousness and brain activity, floating has become a respected health practice. With benefits ranging from pain relief and stress reduction to improved focus and mental clarity, it’s no surprise that floating has attracted the interest of athletes, artists, meditators, and military personnel alike. Floating offers a healthy, drug-free way to feel and be your very best.

“The cure for anything is saltwater: sweat, tears, or the sea.” -Isak Dinesen

Join us for happy hour every Friday evening from 4:00 p.m. to close!
