Momentum Improvisation Lab – Summer Session

Tuesdays, Aug 7 to Sep 25, 6:30pm–8:30pm

An eight-week improvisation class focused on scene-work and stagecraft, for those with basic improv experience.

Learn how to get out of your head and “into the flow” on stage and how to enjoy a playful, trusting attitude in scene-based work. You will also learn about how to make use of your space on stage physically, how to improve your vocal projection in a way that sounds natural, not “stage-y,” and how to engage the audience to inspire your work.

Class is Tuesday nights August 7th to September 25th, 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

Taught by Upfront Theatre alumnus Oona Cava, who has over 15 years experience teaching and performing improv.

‘Talking Godot’ — a lecture by Glenn Hergenhahn-Zhao

Thursday, August 30, 2018 - 7:00 PM

“There are some plays written a hundred years ago that feel like they were written yesterday. To me it seems amazing that Waiting for Godot premiered in a little theater on the West Bank of Paris only 65 years ago. It didn’t go over well.

“Some time later at the London premiere, when one of the characters asks for a rope to hang himself, an audience member yelled, “For Christ’s sake give him some!”

“A play starring two tramps where nothing much at all happens, and it has become maybe the most influential play of the 20th century. Pretty amazing.

“August 30th I will be giving a lecture on the many mysteries of Godot, if you like that sort of thing…” —Sylvia Center Artistic Director Glenn Hergenhahn-Zhao
