Taught by Mark Corkins and Don Russell as an introduction to the actor training methodology of Tadashi Suzuki and the methodology developed by Pacific Performance Project/East.
During the training sessions the students will learn forms and sequences designed to orient the performers to their bodies’ center, spark detailed imagining of space, and discover connections between other performers and the environment, as well as encourage an expansiveness during moments of difficulty on stage. Through these forms and sequences, performers can experience increased immediacy and liveliness in performance by increasing a capacity for deeper concentration and mental/physical unity.

Just like Kayleen and Doug, we just couldn’t let it go. So we’re bringing back “Gruesome Playground Injuries” one more time for Milwaukee.
Kayleen and Doug go through 30 years together as their lives intersect at the most bizarre intervals, leading the two childhood friends to compare scars and the physical calamities that keep drawing them together. Why do we hurt ourselves to gain someone else’s love?, Rajiv Joseph asks in the oddly hilarious “Gruesome Playground Injuries.”
Milwaukee Magazine: “We’re digging this new local theatre company.”
The Small Stage: “An excellent first outing for the group.”
Broadway World: “…this is a wonderfully well-written piece of theater, and one that’s a worthy kick-off for Milwaukee’s new Constructivists.”

Three Pillars Arts is a study of human behavior, communication, and body language based on the three pillars of human expression, the intellectual, the emotional, and the vital impulses. All parts of the body and all movements patterns are studied according to how they reveal the Three Pillars. To attend a Three Pillars Arts Delsarte class is to be re-introduced to your body, to become more deeply aware of the unity of humanity through our expressive bodies, and to fine tune your communication skills. Whether for the purposes of art and performance, or for social and professional goals, Three Pillars Arts classes are filled with “aha moments” as you recognize aspects of expressive movement that you seem to have always known without knowing, and afterward you will feel more free than ever before to powerfully express yourself.
Join The Constructivists for the inaugural Under Construction Play Reading Series. Playwright Matthew Ivan Bennett will be in attendance.
A Latina art teacher fights for her job, her reputation, and autonomy in her classroom, when she’s accused by a Caucasian parent of showing “pornography” to her sixth-grade students in small-town Utah. This new play by Matthew Ivan Bennett takes on our perceptions about race, class, and the human body in classic works of art.
