Street Theater Intensive, June 23 >> 28
For High School and College Students!

Creative collaboration to change your world! Street Theater Intensive students will journey through the roots of performance to study the rich traditions of alternative theater for the public forum. Engaging the customs of commedia, disciplines of an integrated arts ensemble, and the metamorphoses of the spectator- actor, street theater is a vital and exciting means of honing one’s skills as an actor and citizen artist who uses their craft to empower their community and transform public spaces into arenas of artistic exchange and civic action through dramatic expression. This week long intensive immerses teen artists in the history and techniques of street theater, activating physical and verbal text in public spaces and inviting 21st century audiences to add their perspectives via social media. This one-week intensive course culminates in powerful image theatre creations, lazzis, and audience interactive works that travel from Crystal City to Freedom Plaza in Washington D.C. Led by senior Synetic Teachers and master artists from acclaimed dog and pony theater, Teen artists will join Synetic’s physical theater language with devised theater practices to create socially relevant performances.
