Physical Theatre Workshop with Doug Berky

Explore masks, movement, and mime in an intensive workshop with skilled physical theatre performer Doug Berky. Through a combination of mask work and physical improvisation, learn how to fully utilize your body to develop dynamic characters. Doug combines the traditions of Commedia d'ell arte, Marcel Marceau, and Charlie Chaplin for a truly unique performance style that will expand your skills as an actor and storyteller. The workshop is hosted by Halcyon Theatre

Date: Saturday, May 12 from 2-5.
Location: Workshop will take place at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church at 3253 W. Wilson, in Chicago's Albany Park neighborhood .

For nearly thirty years, Doug Berky has brought classic solo physical-theatre performances to stages all over the world, transcending age, race and culture. Using the illusion of the mime, the antics of the clown, the transformation of his own handmade, original and exquisite masks, the suspense of a good story and the excitement of improvisation, Doug inspires laughter... and reflection. He has toured with The Two Penny Circus and The Montanaro Mime Theatre where he appeared in the award-winning NBC children's series, "See Saw," and television specials for Swedish National Television. Doug has performed and taught as Artist-In-Residence at numerous schools and colleges including schools for the deaf, The Commedia School (Copenhagen, Denmark), Roanoke College (Salem, VA), Furman University (Greenville, SC), and the University of Wisconsin, Racine.
