Designed to introduce the key principles of Viola Spolin’s revolutionary acting, directing, and teaching methods in two days (ten hours of play), the weekend intensive will help players be more fully present onstage and off. Beginners and experienced players are welcome. In this workshop we will have the opportunity to play Viola Spolin's theater games in the space where FDR, Jane Addams, Ellen Gates Starr, and Neva Boyd broke bread.

We'll meet: Saturday and Sunday, June 22 & 23, from 11am to 5pm each day, with an hour break for lunch at 2pm.
Location: Jane Addams Hull-House Museum Dining Hall, The University of Illinois at Chicago, 800 S. Halsted Street, Chicago, IL 60607-7017

We'll play some games that require physical activity and we will be up on our feet quite a bit. You are always welcome to play in a way that works for your physical ability, however. In the space below, feel free to let me know about about any physical conditions you'd like me to be aware of. You're also welcome to excuse yourself from any game at any time without explanation.
