Guarantee Your Spot in the (Free) Women's Performance Workshop @ The Strand Theater

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.
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): with your reason for wanting to participate and any accommodations that would make participating easier.
*The WPW is made possible by Engaged Cornell.
