Physical comedy: find your own funny through failure, honesty and play.
We think you're hilarious. Figmentally's unique brand of physical comedy starts with the principle that every moment and every body is full of delight. We'll begin with ice breakers and comedy games to get our brains and bodies warm. Then, we'll look at how how comedy is everywhere. We'll explore physical impulses, hidden thoughts, how to tap your unbounded imagination, how to fail with gusto, and unveil your secret superpower of finding games everywhere! This workshop is good for performers, professionals, teachers, business people, janitors, chemists, psychologists, cashiers, administrators, parents and humans.
Drea Lusion and Eric Parthum, from Oakland (CA) and the Lookout Arts Quarry (WA), are two touring artists who uniquely blend new and old world vaudevillian antics with theater and circus. They construct a new universe of laughter and magic for their audiences—using circus, dance, improv comedy, and physical theatre that entices audience participation and wonder.
