Happy Hour Floats @ Uncharted Waters Float Center
Sep 27 @ 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

Laughing Mater Presents Bri Pruett @ Alma Mater
Oct 4 @ 8:00 pm

We’re back with our October installment of Laughing Mater!

Host:
Jaci Terjeson
Jaci is a Tacoma based comedian that travels around the PNW sharing far too much with complete strangers. She’s often seen giving unsolicited parenting advice and telling people they have something in their teeth. Jaci is a regular host in clubs and showcases around the Seattle area, and competed in the 2019 Comedy on Trial at Punchline Comedy.

Featuring:
Andy Iwancio
Andy is a transgender gal comedian from Seattle who is a regular at the Comedy Nest, Five Quarters Funny, and Comedy Crater. She has opened for Riley Silverman, James Adomian, and Cameron Esposito.

Rachel Laurendeau
Rachel was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington and got her start in comedy in Olympia while she attended The Evergreen State College. Now based out of Tacoma, Rachel works with children by day and entertains the bar crowds by night. Rachel produces a clean comedy showcase called Wholesome HaHas and co-produces various comedy events at Honey Studios in Tacoma. Rachel’s comedy is versatile and approachable with a generous sprinkling of sass. Rachel recently placed second in Seattle’s yearly Comedy on Trial competition and was selected to compete in the Western Oregon Comedy Competition.

Cameron Mazzuca
Lovable bearded everyman Cameron Mazzuca gets excited onstage. It’s because he’s happy to be doing what he loves, and probably also because he had too much Diet Coke. Born in the City of Destiny, Tacoma, and raised everywhere, he’s become a regular on comedy club stages in Seattle as well as festivals like Folklife, Bumbershoot and venues across the Pacific Northwest. His infectious enthusiasm and goshdarn good-Italian-boy friendliness will win you over in a big way.

Headlining:
Bri Pruett
Bri Pruett is a stand-up comic and improviser from Portland, Oregon, living in Los Angeles, California. Her TedxTalk on beauty standards dropped in 2018. In 2017, she was featured on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle. In 2016 she won the Willamette Week reader’s poll for Best Comedian in Portland. Splitsider.com has named her a “comic-to-watch.”

She’s appeared on Dan Savage’s Savage Lovecast, Doug Loves Movies and NPR’s Live Wire. Her live festival appearances include: TBA Festival, Bridgetown, Riot LA, SF Sketch Fest, All Jane Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot and more. She also makes regular appearances at comedy clubs across the country; although Portland’s Helium Comedy Club will always be her home.

Her solo show, STELLAR, debuted in Portland in 2016; later it was accepted into the 2018 Bootleg Solo Queens Festival in Los Angeles. It’s been called, “Unaplogetically feminine…” and “Body-positive, pro-self love and pro-female sexuality… overtly feminist and feel-good.”

Bri has shared her time as a comedian and MC to several non-profit/arts organizations: Kollaboration, NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon, Planned Parenthood advocates of Oregon, JOIN, and The Portland Art Museum.

Solo Performance Workshop @ Urban Grace Downtown Church
Oct 7 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Solo Performance Workshop

Begins on Monday, October 7, 2019, 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM
SOLO PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP STARTS MONDAY OCTOBER 7th, 2019 6:30-9:30, EVERY MONDAY UNTIL DECEMBER 2nd.

This workshop is for anyone who stands alone in front of an “audience” and wants to or must tell a story, present an idea, give a speech, act a play, or convey a message.
Your “audience” might be in a theater, a classroom, a workspace or a conference room. You might be presenting to patrons, students, children, co-workers, employees, or managers. You may an actor, dancer, circus artist, musician, or storyteller. This workshop is for ANYONE that needs to stand alone in front of an audience and create whatever is you need to convey!
You are a Solo Performer!

The only requirement is that you bring an IDEA. It can be a prop, a movement, a lesson plan, a speech, a poem, 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.

This process includes theater games, acting exercises, movement, exploration, improv, and discussions that provoke, communication skill-building, material development, character building, motivation, playing, storytelling, stage presence, confidence, writing and of course just getting on your feet and starting.
It all starts with what motivates you!

Creating original work and any form of solo performance is a personal journey that requires a safe and open space with constructive feedback. This workshop is exactly that and much more.

Your experience will be tailored to your individual needs!

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