Rosa-Shapiro will be doing a series of performances throughout June and July at Feast. A full list of performance times will be available on the Feast website in the coming days.
In addition to performances, Rosa-Shapiro will be teaching a number of classes and workshops in performance art:
- Celebrate Your Stupid (ages 12-18) – Saturday, June 23, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Through games, play and movement analysis, we will become familiar with our own personal comedy and sublime stupidity. This class is a celebration of hope, failure, desire, silliness, uniqueness, and the things that all humans share. Cost $30.
- Physical Comedy (ages 7-11) – Saturday, June 23, 2-5 p.m. In this class we will use theater games and exercises to learn some mime and classic clown gags, and to create our own! Cost $30.
- Celebrate Your Stupid (ages 18 and up) – Saturday June 30, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (with a lunch break from 1-2 p.m.) Through games, play and movement analysis, we will become familiar with our own personal comedy and sublime stupidity. This class is a celebration of hope, failure, desire, silliness, uniqueness, and the things that all humans share. Cost $30.
Supplies for all classes: comfy clothes in which to move and play (no skirts, please. For adults: preferably black or some neutral tone, without writing or logo); a water bottle; snacks to enjoy during breaks. Footwear: barefoot or closed-toed athletic sneakers that are comfortable for movement.
