Performance Workshop with Split Britches at Studio 303

HANDS-ON PERFORMANCE WITH SPLIT BRITCHES

“This was a fantastic workshop. It brought me so much. Amazing teachers! Bring them back please!” – B.A. Markus, 2011

A practical workshop designed to give performers of all types – even non-performers – the tools and toys to create solo work from the ordinary details and extra-ordinary fantasies of their lives. In a relaxed, yet structured environment, we will work with movement, impulse, autobiographical text, found text, song, dance, fantasy persona, popular culture and, most importantly, their individual desire to make the things they never thought they could make and say the things they always wanted to say.

About Split Britches

Split Britches was founded 30 years ago by Peggy Shaw, Lois Weaver and Deb Margolin. Since 1980 we have transformed the landscape of queer performance with our vaudevillian satirical gender-bending performance. Split Britches creates new forms by exploiting old conventions. It borrows from classical texts and popular myths, but its true sources are the details of everyday life. The work is personal, bordering on the private. It relies on moments rather than plot, relationships rather than story. It is about a community of outsiders, queers, eccentrics – feminist because it encourages the imaginative potential in everyone, and lesbian because it takes the presence of a lesbian on stage as a given.
