So we took another class to Italy in July. That's where I was for all of July. And I totally and completely forgot to post it. So . . . SURPRISE! I'm back, and it was an incredible event of directing, teaching, acting and collaborating -- truly the best we've had yet. In addition to that, Heather Stuart and I got to perform at the inauguration of a renovated amphitheater in Aquapendente. We adapted the balcony scene from our clown Romeo & Juliet, and got the audience laughing and sighing, even with the text all in English. An amazing adventure, all around.
This weekend I'll be at Camp Nerdly. If you want to come improvise and story-game, sign up and then head down to Prince William Forest Park. For a mere $50, you'll be treated to what is essentially an uninterrupted session of potent creativity and collaboration. I'll be in Cabin Wererat . . . which is curiously, and perhaps not unintentionally, apt.
Join Zuppa del Giorno for the first of what will hopefully be many workshops we teach on corporate team-building and collaborative techniques on the Marywood campus, June 26. We'll be conducting a four-hour workshop featuring improvisation games and discussions about what it is to communicate effectively and how that parley that into profound collaboration.
This weekend I'll be working very, very hard at Camp Nerdly. If you want to come improvise and story-game (and even a little [shudder] role-playing), head down to Prince William Forest Park. I'll be in Cabin Otyugh.
All next week I'll be out of town for an initial collaborative workshop to develop Zuppa del Giorno's proposed clown/commedia dell'arte version of Romeo & Juliet. Scranton, Pennsylvania, will be my host as well as host to bunches of other talented people at various times throughout the week. So come on out to The Northeast Theatre to play, if you can! There are no rules! Beginnings are so much freaking fun!
Buckle your safety belts: Tomorrow Prohibitive Standards opens at The Northeast Theatre! Come see me play a down-on-his-luck gangster, a cowardly cop and a mysterious individual, all in Zuppa del Giorno's inimitable comic style!
