Race, Page & Stage: A Youth Theater Intensive

A FREE youth theater weekend workshop!

Friday, November 15, 5 – 7 pm
Saturday, November 16, 10 am – 2 pm
Sunday, November 17, 10 am – 2 pm

Budding dramatists ages 15-18 are invited to apply for this F-R-E-E weekend theater intensive.

Race, Page & Stage is a workshop in scene-writing and improvisational theater exploring the politics of interracial dating and relating among Asian Americans.

You’ll dissect a scene from David Henry Hwang’s M. Butterfly. Then you’ll break into smalls groups; each will write short scripts to adapt it to present-day scenarios. Then participants will enact these scripts, using both basic techniques from method acting and improvisational theater. The workshop will close with a surprise scene-writing/improvisational performance game.

The workshop will be facilitated by Melissa Reburiano. A seasoned educator, Melissa has taught everything from beginning guitar to Quantitative Social Research Methods, and has co-facilitated a theater workshop at an after-school program for children of the incarcerated.  Melissa also works as a grant writer for the homeless at Urban Pathways and is raising two daughters. She is a doctoral student in Applied Anthropology at Columbia University researching the intersection of race, class, and gender on the Internet, where her latest project investigates the historical and cultural contexts behind Asian American men participating in online spaces known as the seduction community.

Beginners are welcome! Space is limited, so please apply promptly.

Workshop is co-presented with Teachers & Writers Collaborative.
