HB Performance Lab Summer 2020 – A Virtual Lab to be held over Zoom:
Directed by Paul Pryce –
This performance lab will be a workshop where participating actors will interview several individuals out on the frontlines of this double pandemic. The actor is tasked to find a story that resonates with him or her and which sheds light on their personal experience with the coronavirus or the protests for racial injustice and equality.
The Interview Project is an exercise in acute observation, imitation and ultimately the interpretation of an individual with the end goal being; the complete immersion of one human being (the actor) into the skin, experience and experience of another (the interviewee). The task isn’t just about mimicking physical mannerisms, even though this is a core component of the exercise, the Interview Project is more a process of finding your way of inhabiting the person whom you are interviewing. To personalize their thoughts, habitual behaviors and experiences as your own and to bring that experience from these to the virtual stage.
Open to all, free of charge.
Thursdays, 5-7:30pm | July 9-Aug 20
Saturday & Sunday, 7:30pm | August 22 & 23
