Service Description

Feminist Acting Class is a series of experiments to determine if the form and content of an acting class can both be made feminist. We welcome adults (and teens 16+ with parental consent) of all genders and all levels to join us in expanding the possibilities for women, trans, and nonbinary people in theatre, film and beyond. Participants will use scene study, personal excavation, and communal big picture thinking to expand their artistry. You might leave with greater knowledge of women/TGNC/queer playwrights, a monologue that broadens your range and type, or a paradigm shift about your career. We will use Zoom to its full capacity, incorporating physical work and theatre games to the extent possible. We hope that Zoom makes the class more accessible, and allows interested actors from all over the country to join. This weekend-long workshop meets: Friday September 22 from 5pm-7pm Pacific (8pm-10pm Eastern) Saturday September 23 from 10am-2pm Pacific (1pm-5pm Eastern) Sunday September 24 from 10am-2pm Pacific (1pm-5pm Eastern) While it is not required, for the full experience, we encourage you to attend all sessions. Class size is kept small to prioritize student participation and personal attention. Registration is $325 for new students, $275 for returning students. (Returning students email Gina for your discount.) We offer a couple of sliding scale and scholarship spots when possible, with priority given to BIPOC, trans, and/or disabled actors. We would also like to offer a discount to current SAG and WGA members while the strike continues. To inquire about any of these discounts, please email with a short paragraph about your interest in the class. Created by award-winning playwright and director Gina Young in 2016, Feminist Acting Class has been presented by The Hammer Museum, The Women’s Center for Creative Work, Directors Lab West, The Association for Theatre in Higher Education Conference and Grand Park’s Our LA Voices Festival, as well as in lecture form at NYU/Tisch, CalArts, The University of Connecticut, Pomona, Loyola Marymount, and Chapman. “Young challenges the traditional, hierarchical structure of a learning environment, and challenges conventional notions of gender, drawing attention to the oppressive structures in place.” – Daisy Marsden, Bringing Sexy Back
