Suzuki Based Performer Training
Mondays at 7pm Now – November 27
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. Participants will experience an introduction to the work Mr. Suzuki developed for his company in Japan, as well as evolutions adapted and designed by Robyn Hunt and Steve Pearson for P3/East productions and training for the American theatre. While this work is most fruitfully experienced in a longer-term, extensive exploration (with mastery as its goal), students can gain strong, practical, and useful skills in shorter, more concentrated training sessions.
The cost of training for CP Members is $10 per session or $30 for a four session package. For non-members, the cost is $15 per session or $45 for the four session package. (We request that participants are 18+ years of age)
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? Any clothes you would wear to workout in will be fine. The training is traditionally done in tabi, which are Japanese socks. However, many folks choose to work in a pair of durable athletic socks.
Love. Pranks. Whiskey
Mistress Page and Mistress Ford are both very happily married. So when the disreputable rogue Falstaff sends them each identical letters proposing they have an affair with him, the ladies plan a series of pranks to teach him not to fool with the wives of Windsor.
Eleven actors take on multiple roles in this fully rehearsed, staged, and memorized production. Each night, one of the actors will shoot back enough whiskey at the top of the show to be very drunk by its end. Will love stay true through such comic misadventures? Will the drunk actor remember all their lines? Find out at Bard & Bourbon’s Studio Series show, The Merry Wives of Windsor (drunk).
