About the Event
GUEST ARTIST WORKSHOP: Class of Games
Sunday, April 16th (time TBD)

Join collaborators Michael Galligan and Bailey Nassetta (co-creators of Banana) for a 90-minute workshop in clowning and devised theater. Explore the process of creating theater through games, improvisation, and physical comedy. This type of work emphasizes exploration, play, and rejects the idea that there is a "right way" to be funny. All levels are welcome.
