"TRICKSTER" with Mike Funt
Explore the playful and disruptive side of human imagination as it is embodied in Trickster mythos, in Mike Funt’s: TRICKSTER. Utilizing several art forms through the lens of Trickster traditions and mythologies from around the world, come play in a realm where the artist is there to disrupt, mock, provoke, and entertain: the realm of the Trickster. These archetypal figures have served as leaders in communication and healing since our cultural beginnings. They feature as prominent parts of story-telling, tribal rituals, performing arts, and ceremonies in cultures all over the world to entertain and amuse, but also provoke and unsettle. They control through chaos. They give, and they take. They flatter you, and they mock you. They are ridiculous and sublime.
Cavort in the worlds of Dionysian cults in Greece, Anansi in West Africa, Coyote in North America, Sun Wukong in China, and more; Learn about modernist trickster creators like Ray Charles, Moms Mabley, and Salvadore Dali to discover ways to use humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to create a strong point of view;
Perform exercises and improvisations that are carefully constructed to build skills and techniques in rhythm, physicality, imagination, and story-telling that are applicable to many different art forms and discipline.

"Virtual Playground" with Shannan Calcutt
Study with the amazing and inspirational clown master Shannan Calcutt of Cirque du Soleil’s ZUMANITY fame! Play big, risk gloriously and fail better. This class was workshoped and designed to be experienced virtually. It's time to bring the playground into your own home where all the props, toys, and costumes you often wish for in the studio are suddenly at your disposal. Participants must explain to housemates ahead of time that they will be noisy, move throughout the house and be free of inhibitions. It’s recess for grownups! A chance to play, get moving, let loose, be silly and make genuine connections with other fabulous fools. Common side effects include (but are not limited to) feeling more alive, awake, joyful, connected, playful, confident, hopeful, present and creative.

"Virtual Playground with Text" with Shannan Calcutt
In this smaller class, Shannan will send participants a short script and cast list in advance. You'll have a few days to review your lines and stage directions and can adjust as you wish for zoom. If you want to memorize your lines, well, that’d be pretty spectacular! Then you’ll have a little more freedom to abandon the script. As always, we must set the rules before we break them. This is a fun opportunity to experience how clowns approach text.
Max class size: 12 participants.
