WRITING FOR PERFORMANCE PERSONA WORKSHOP

The Lab
2948 16th Street
San Francisco, CA 94103

415-864-8855
1-4pm Workshop
$40 Guests / $30 Members

During the Writing for a Performance Persona workshop we will explore various exercises designed to help you access deep crevasses of your personal experience that can become the driving desire behind a performance persona. The goal is not to leave the workshop with a developed piece of work, but rather to learn some new ways of accessing material within yourself. Writers, performers, dancers, drag showgirls, thinkers, visual artists all welcome!

Here are some of the activity titles (without explanations - you can just use your imagination for now):

• All about my mother
• Ultimate fighting machine
• Personal ad for dad
• Heartbreaking singer/songwriter
• I am so sick of m’self

DYNASTY HANDBAG

SPF is an initiative by Galerie Juliette Jongma & Kunstverein, Amsterdam, in collaboration with De Ateliers, organized by Jeanine Hofland
Generously supported by the municipality of Amsterdam; Stadsdeel Zuid

Dynasty Handbag presents a mixed handbag of "songs" which were never recorded or released, by people she never was. Hits include a muddy new-country ballad about fear of intimacy, a vaguely European new wave lezbo-bot dance jam concerning breakfast choices and capitalism, and an unfinished pill-faced hippy ode to mother earth. An imaginary lifetime—unplugged, unhinged, and uncomfortable. Expect the worst best dancing and 30 second death metal voice at some point.

ABOUT THE CAVERN CLUB CELEBRITY THEATER
This fantastic gem of a little theater is in the basement of the Casita Del Campo Restaurant.  and listen, if you haven't been here before, now is the time mary.  Come early and have a drink at the bar and a festive Mexican meal before the show!  Lots of room for you and your friends, plus valet parko and chips.  Also there is a fountain.  Make a wish. Oops! It already came true!  If you hate fun atmospheres, come and suffer!

Rowdy, raunchy and queer as folk, Dynasty Handbag is a blazing stage presence. Here she presents a batch of “golden oldies”—a veritable mixtape of songs from a roster of wholly invented artists. From country ballads to Euro dance, the tunes are good for a laugh and much more besides. This is caffeinated camp—a manic, celebratory send-up of gender and performativity. … one of the funniest, tone-perfect pieces of performance art seen in years.The New York Times

Creativity Hurdles Workshoppe!

Creativity Hurdles Workshop with Jibz Cameron
Saturday, October 22nd, 1-4pm
$40 WCCW Member / $50 Regular
 


This workshop focuses on identifying and untangling various creative blockages that prevent us from accessing our truest most inspired places. These beasts can take many forms - from blocks that are reinforced culturally to just old crap we carry around with us. Learn some new tools to get through these thorny SPIRIT blockages and move THROUGH with your ART.

And, as our cups overrunneth with information, ideas, emotions, concepts, visual wonders, memories, passions, politics, - sometimes it is hard to access these gems, let alone shape them into something that can be "seen" clearly. We will explore writing exercises to get into these conceptual file cabinets and play with what's in there.

Here's what EVERYONE (no exceptions) is saying...

"Lizzy Cooperman's a witchy lady. In her act, she writhes around the stage like a crazy combination of Sarah Jessica Parker in Hocus Pocus and Norma Desmond. She plays morose tones on a keyboard, and punctuates her set with unhinged laughter. She's all of us, is what I'm saying, and catching her at Sunday's Depresshow at Branx between two other shows was an accidental Bridgetown highlight." - Portland Mercury

Part I
Soul crushing creative blockage defense class

Part I of the workshop series focuses on identifying and untangling various creative blockages that prevent us from accessing our truest most inspired places.  These beasts can take many forms – from blocks that are reinforced culturally to just old crap we carry around with us.  Learn some new tools to get through these thorny SPIRIT blockages and move THROUGH with your ART.

Part II
Getting ideas out

All of our cups overrunneth with information, ideas, emotions, concepts, visual wonders, memories, passions, politics, – and sometimes it is hard to access these gems, let alone shape them into something that can be “seen” clearly.  Part II of our workshop series will introduce some writing exercises to get into these conceptual file cabinets and play with what’s in there.  

Part III
Physical rubberbanding i
t
As a performer – we have one tool.  Our brains. Just kidding. Our bodz!  That means we have to practice getting out of the the mind and into the bod.  Part III is about physicalizing aspects of the discoveries made in Parts I and II of the workshop.  Let’s work it out!

Part IV
Self producing productions

Sometimes its very difficult to find a spot to present your brilliant opususus (opusi?).  Many of us don’t want to necessarily present in conventional performances spaces.  Or there just simply are not enough spaces that suit our needs.  Or we just can’t find something!  Learn how to produce your own show.  We will look at all the details of self producing in its imperfect glory: finding a space, programming a solid event, social media outreach, contracts, dealing with $, working with friends, where to buy cheapest La Croix.
