MUST PREREGISTER

When: Saturday July 21, 2012
Where: New Orleans Healing Center
2372 St. Claude Avenue
New Orleans, LA 70117
Phone 504-940-1130

Cost: $150
Age limit: 18+
Description: NO INDOOR VOICES: Through a series of exercises, each attendee is guided to her/his own understanding of humor and the thin line between comedy and drama. Specific techniques have been designed that encourage participants to break free from comfort zones, emotional boundaries and safe places and push them for a more intimate connection to their work. Your goal is to take risks and your motto is “Go Big or Go Home!” 

“What makes my work something anyone will want to read or hear?” 

For many writers, striking a balance between conflict and resolve, comedy and drama is a sticking point. Whether you’re a novelist, a poet or a stand up comic this method of exploration carries the writer from solitary confinement to performance. Not for the faint of heart, this workshop is only interested in the raw emotions writers and performers mine in order to get to the meat of their work. WARNING: IF YOU DON’T HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR, if you don’t like frank discussion, profanity, thoughts other than your own, or use of/being on video tape this is not the experience for you. You DO NOT have to be a performer, but you will be expected to participate fully in all ‘reindeer games.’ 

Workshop Breakdown:

1.) Introductions, goals of class/writers as individuals, writing assignment. 
Break: 
2.) First Amendment-Writers learn to push boundaries. 
3.) Writing on your feet. Improvisational exercises loosen up muscles, ideas and opportunity. 
4.) Listening. We have two ears and one mouth so why do most people talk more than listen? We’ll do some listening exercises and work on monologues. 
Break: 
5.) Q&A with Special Guest Dylan Brody Purveyor of Fine Words and Phrases.www.dylanbrody.com


FYI: In order to maintain integrity within the class, a minimum of 15 students, no more than 25, are required. An evening performance with Kimmie Dee and Dylan Brody as well as local talent TBA will take place at Café Istanbul and a lucky lottery winning attendee will also take the stage to perform. Tickets for the evening performance are FREE for workshop attendees ONLY.
