Longform 501: Advanced Harold
This is where we get into the really bold stuff. Building on the previous level, this class will explore not only the ways that the audience suggestion informs the content of the scenes — but the very structure of the Harold itself. You will deconstruct the meanings and properties of words, get playful with theatrical techniques, and turn each individual Harold into its own unique experience.
Wednesdays, 6:30 to 9:30 pm, March 4 to April 22 (with Dani Alon)
Location note: this class will be held in the Library at Arts Court (2 Daly Ave).
