ANNOUNCING A NEW CLASS THIS FALL - SPREAD THE WORD!!! SIGN-UP SOON, ITS FILLING UP!
Aesthetic Movements: Manifestos and the Avant-Garde
Examining key manifestos and exemplary works from the Italian and Russian Futurist, Dada, Surrealist and Situationist International movements, we will explore how aesthetic and performance practices can be used as tactics to respond to or resist cultural norms and to establish new modes of expression and being in the world. An interdisciplinary class, participants will work across artistic disciplines and fields of knowledge, but performance will serve as our primary investigatory tool, helping us to activate avant-garde texts and to engage these approaches now/today through embodied practices!

Wildcat! Workshop for Tactical Self-Enfranchisement
Who: For people who collaborate. This workshop will include physical movement. Be prepared to move around. Workshop is accessible to all and can adapt to fit everyone's needs.
Date: Saturday, June 6th from 10am - 1pm
Place: 25 Broadway, 7th floor
Instructors: Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste, Eleni Zaharopoulos, and André M. Zachery
Cost: $15 for summer course students, $25 for Brooklyn College/PIMA students & alum, and $65 for general public
DESCRIPTION: How do we use our individual skills to collaborate AND support one another? How do we develop collaborative skills that are socially responsible? Our society is simultaneously collaborative and anti-collaborative. Naturally, we develop our own set of tactics in order to participate within this duality. These tactics range from selfish to selfless. When we talk about collaboration in art-making, we are adding an artistic lens to something we already do every day. This workshop is designed to discover/discuss/illuminate our collaborative tactics and collectively evaluate if they are supportive of a community at large. Drawing from the collaborative history of their interdisciplinary collective, Wildcat!, Jeremy, Eleni, and André will lead a workshop that critically explores the ways we collaborate and the ways we don't- even when we think we are. In addition, they will also share some of their successful collaborative methods discovered while working together.

Announcing... the Funny School of Good Acting's NYC clown for all weekends with Christopher Bayes, Acclaimed Director and Master Teacher of Physical Comedy/Clown
Space is limited! Get your spot now!
It’s a complete disaster of fun and chaos... Everyone's invited! Exercises will be tailored to each individual's level and built to encourage both discovery and continuing growth: encouraging the new and provoking the veterans simultaneously. We will surely illuminate something elusive and rare: the comic world (with great peals of laughter)!
Jump into your body... open like a little flower (again)... rediscover your playful spirit, the simple pleasure and ferocious generosity of performance. In this intensive workshop we (the new and the old friends) pursue the clown together in all of its messy and hilarious beauty. Your relationship to all other forms of drama will be enriched again, still or for the first time by the openness and reckless abandon that the clown requires. The pleasure is in the pursuit.
