Sod House Theater of Minneapolis will offer free music and acting workshops led by professional theater artist Luverne Seifert and professional musicians Brian Laidlaw and Ashley Hanson.

6:30p to 7:45 Kick in the Pants: Physical Comedy Routines – We will begin with a vocal and physical warm- up with Luverne Seifert. We will then introduce stage techniques of physical comedy; slaps, kicks, trips, falls, fixed points and awkward timing decisions. Participants will develop a 1-2 minute comedy routine that they will develop and perform. No preparation necessary. Dress to move comfortably.

7:45 to 9p Hometown Ballad Songwriting Workshop In this workshop, you will share stories about your community, discuss the craft songwriting, and start to turn stories shared into original songs. Open to all ages and levels of experience; singers, musicians, and writers encouraged to attend; instruments are invited, but not required.

During the workshops they will also hold an information session and call for actors, musicians and volunteers to participate in one of their performances of “An Enemy of the People” – a site-specific performance that will take place in various communities over the summer. NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. We provide a playful and safe environment to learn skills for performance.

 

This activity is made possible in part by a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.Sod House Theater
