Have you ever wanted to incorporate objects or imagery into your work, but have lacked the tools or the entry point for exploration?

Then come join us for “Uses of Object in Performance and Storytelling” a workshop led by Maiko Kikuchi, Jacob Slominski, and Rowan Magee that will explore when a prop stops being just a prop and becomes an integral part of the work on Saturday May 14 from 2-6pm. Maiko will share how she translates her collage work into 2d/3d costume/sets. Rowan will discuss his use of puppetry and how he performs with, next to, and through objects. Jacob will share how he uses story telling, found object, and imagination as performance. Participants will then create an “instant installation” performance, using the tools they have gained through the workshop and previous purchased materials. This piece be performed by participants as a 5 to 10 minute opener to Maiko and Rowan’s evening of performance that same day.
