Ear to the Ground announces the
Register for Classes at Brown Paper Tickets www.brownpapertickets.com
We here at Ear to the Ground have been looking for a way to connect with fellow performers and keep our chops up in between shows. So, we gathered together some of our favorite teachers around the area (two from Portland!) and asked them to share their best with us. And now we've put them together in a series we're affectionately calling the Clown Dojo!
And yes, we have a great Clown intensive scheduled with Sarah Foster, but we have so much more! Acrobatics, Clowning, LeCoq technique, Stage Combat, Michael Chekhov technique, and Biomechanics. Great stuff!
*You must sign up for classes at least ONE WEEK in advance. So make sure to register soon!*
Classes will be held March, April, and May in the TPS rooms at the Seattle Center. Below are the details for our first few classes - we'll keep you posted as we confirm more dates. You can always check our website for all the details.Stage Combat for Physical Performers
In this class you will learn many of the skills needed to perform unarmed stage combat safely. This may include techniques such as eye contact, partnering, distance, targeting, falls, pushes, punches (both contact and non-contact), blocks, kicks, avoidances, chokes, commitment to the illusion of violence, and possible scene work. Be prepared to move!
*Taught by J.H. Welch. 4 night series - April 7, 14, 21, and 28. $60 Regular, $48 TPS, $100 for two students when you sign up with a friend.*The Red Nose
Join us for weekend clown intensive. This course delves into the comedy and poetry of clown, a specific movement-based theatrical genre. Through intense play and physical analysis, find what is uniquely, genuinely funny about you, and how to express that on stage.
*Taught by Sarah Liane Foster. 3-day intensive - April 16, 17, 18. $99 Regular, $80 TPS, $170 for two students when you sign up with a friend.*
