This workshop is for anyone who stands alone and wants to or has to tell a story, present an idea or convey a message.

Your audience might be in a theater, a class room or a conference room.

You might be presenting to patrons, students or employees.

You can also be an actor, dancer, circus artist, musician, storyteller or anyone that wants to try something new.

You are a Solo Performer!

The only requirement is that you have an IDEA. It can be a prop, a movement, a lesson plan, a speech, a poem, a word, a thought etc.

Michelle Matlock will lead the group through a creative process that she has used to develop her solo work for the past 20 years.

This process includes games and exercises that inspire character building, storytelling, stage presence, content creation, embracing mistakes, audience awareness, and of course just getting on your feet and starting.

It all starts with what motivates you!

Presenting and creating original work is a journey that requires a safe and open space with constructive feedback. This workshop is exactly that and much more.

Michelle will lead 1 three hour workshop per week for 9 weeks. Each participant will present up to 10 minutes of new material at a Work In Progress Showcase free invite only (family and friends) at Black Box Theater (Pantages).

Each participant will get a digital video of their own performance, speech or presentation.

8 students required. 10 max.

The time is now!
