Feminist Acting Class is a series of experiments to determine if the form and content of an acting class can both be made feminist. Part art project, part intellectual experiment and part dynamic physical practice, Feminist Acting Class aims to expand the possibilities for women, transgender and nonbinary people in theater and beyond. What happens when we take on male roles? Can we perform sexist material in such a way that it becomes feminist? Can we approach our acting practice in ways that resist sexist expectations of women performers? Participants will develop scenes together and explore ways to read against a text, leaving with tools to create change including an expanded knowledge of women playwrights and a monologue that expands your range and type. Feminist Acting Class has been presented by the Hammer Museum and returns to the Women's Center for Creative Work on November 10-12.
