Train with Pig Iron Theatre in Chicago

Performers as Creators
Join Pig Iron Theatre Company member Melissa Krodman for a weekend workshop focusing on the performer as creator of original material. The workshop will highlight the methods and exercises Pig Iron uses to forge performance works that are physically articulate and rhythmically precise.

Can a work of theatre have depth and sophistication without words? Can a gesture stand in for the whole? Can an ensemble create a physical vocabulary to capture an audience's imagination? The workshop will tackle these questions in a rigorous and playful environment intended to provide adult theatre-makers with tools to strengthen a performer's ability to create new theatrical worlds.

Feb. 3, 6:00PM-9:00PM
Feb. 4, 10:00AM-4:00PM
Feb. 5, 10:00AM-4:00PM
