Women's Performance Workshop
WHEN: August 17th & 18th, 2018. Space is limited so please send your inquiry by July 1st to guarantee your spot. After July 1st, participants will be accepted on a rolling basis until the workshop is full.
WHERE:
Strand Theater, 5426 Harford Rd., Baltimore

Following the success of the Women’s Performance Workshop earlier this year, the Strand is pleased to again offer a FREE introductory Women’s Performance Workshop to women-identified Baltimore community members.

The workshop will be led by the Strand’s Founding Artistic Director (2007-2012), Jayme Kilburn, along with previous WPW participants.

The workshop is open to all women-identified, trans, and non-binary community members in Baltimore City and beyond. It is not necessary to have any prior performance experience to participate in the workshop.

By using collaborative performance-based techniques, community-engaged exercises, and narrative writing, the WPW creates a space where women can generate their own solo performance based on personal stories. The workshop culminates in a performance on Saturday, August 18th at 8pm.

If you are interested in participating, please email Jayme Kilburn (project organizer): jayme@strand-theater.org with your reason for wanting to participate and any accommodations that would make participating easier.
*The WPW is made possible by Engaged Cornell.
