This workshop is for anyone who stands alone and wants to or has to tell a story, present an idea, give a speech, act a play or convey a message. Your audience might be in a theater, a classroom, a work space or a conference room. You might be presenting to patrons, students, children, co-workers, employees or managers. You can also be an actor, dancer, circus artist, musician, storyteller or anyone that wants to do something different. You are a Solo Performer! The only requirement is that you bring an IDEA. It can be a prop, a movement, a lesson plan, a speech, a poem, a word, a thought etc. Michelle Matlock will lead the group through a creative process that she has used to develop her solo work for the past 20 years (Check out her projects and results here ). This process includes theater games, acting exercises, movement, exploration, improv and discussions that provoke, communication skill building, material development,  character building, motivation, playing, storytelling, stage presence, confidence, writing and of course just getting on your feet and starting.  It all starts with what motivates you! Creating original work and any form of solo performance is a personal journey that requires a safe and open space with constructive feedback. This workshop is exactly that and much more.  Your experience will be tailored to your individual needs. Michelle will lead 1 three-hour workshop per week for 9 weeks.
