at Strawdog Theatre Company, 1802 W Berenice Ave, Chicago IL 60613
(Irving Park Brown Line, Damen/Ashland Buses | Limited off street parking available)
The Introduction to Immersive Performance workshop is designed to help performers and creators begin to understand a host of tactics employed to engage audience members without the separation provided by a fourth wall. Participants can expect to spend time exploring depth of touch, physical energetic manipulation/transfer, audience navigation, immersive world building, magnetism and authority, and inception/mental manipulation. We will work with group audience flow, control, and herd patterns as well as one-on-one audience engagement. Expect to move, explore, and be bold! Only 13 more spots available as of 4:00PM on 10/31.
