FEMINIST ACTING CLASS
Open to the public. Join award-winning playwright and director Gina Young (she/they) for a weekend intensive that explores whether the form and content of an acting class can both be made intersectionally feminist. Through monologues, scene study, and communal big picture thinking, we'll flip the script on traditional actor training. You might leave with greater knowledge of women/TGNC/queer playwrights, a monologue that expands your range and type, or a paradigm shift about your career. All genders and all levels welcome!
