Tomorrow will be my first day teaching with the Electric Theatre Company's new educational outreach program: Zip Zap Zop. Heather Stuart and I will be up to our old acrobalance, improvisation and physical characterization tricks with a large group of high school students of various ages from around the greater Scranton community. The program goes on throughout June, but I'll only be teaching on select days; namely May 22, June 5, 19 & 28. This is the kind of longer-term educational curriculum I'm excited to explore right now, to see what can be accomplished with more time to develop relationships and absorb training.
Tomorrow you can catch me and Heather Stuart performing and teaching acrobalance in Scranton, Pennsylvania. If you want to perfect your Angel, or Front Thigh-Stand, here will be a free opportunity! We'll be highlighting the importance of interdependence as a value for living . . . and for maintaining perilous poses.
Come see me in dual roles at the launch of The Northeast Theatre's rebranding into Electric Theatre Company! Sparks & Feathers is a gala affair that will feature many attractions, amongst which I will be performing as...
- Chico Marx, as a part of the rambunctious walkabout antics of the complete Marx Bros.; and
- One half a pair of domino-style acrobats performing acrobalance to the musical stylings of Cuban Tres.
Join me as I stilt-walk my way into the hearts and minds of literally dozens, performing in The Women's Project's 2008 public show, Corporate Carnival. Corporate Carnival will be performed in the heart of the World Financial Center for four days, opening May 14th and closing after three shows on May 17th. It's funny, it's zany, it's circus on Wall Street!
If you can afford to, come see me mime and acrobalance my way through crowds of minglers at the NYFA's benefit event, Carnival. Under the auspices of Cirque Boom, we will invade Cafe Un Deux Trois and infect it with our unique brand of comedy and delight starting at 6:00 pm on May 12. One night only! Come hang out with a better class of people than you're used to!
