Default Celebration Barn's 1-Month Creation Intensive has a space for you!

Celebration Barn's One-Month Intensive
with Davis Robinson, Karen Montanaro and Special Guests Fritz Grobe, Leland Faulkner, Rob Mermin and More!
July 2-28, 2012

This year's Intensive Workshop is bigger than ever with a month-long immersion with master teachers Davis Robinson, Karen Montanaro and special guests. The workshop starts next Monday and we still have a space for you. Jump in!

The Intensive Workshop encourages artists to push the boundaries of creative theater with daily classes in movement, improvisation, premise work, physical graphics, and principles of ensemble building. Master classes with world-class guest teaching artists will strengthen and diversify students' skill sets. Inspired by daily assignments, students will have the opportunity to create and perform their own new work.

Each week will lead to new challenges and increasing levels of risk and collaboration. We will use the natural world surrounding the Barn, music, literature, current events, and the human condition to devise original material in groups, duets, and solo.

People who arrive at the workshop with existing ideas for material will be encouraged to push their work in new directions, to test their strength and resilience with new technical skills, and to open up new avenues for exploration in an intensive and supportive atmosphere of creative joy and mutual discovery.

Veteran Cirque du Soleil performer Steven Ragatz, who first studied at Celebration Barn in 1989, returned last summer to participate in the Intensive Workshop. He says, "It's well suited for anyone who has to be on stage. It is the sort of thing you can take again, and again, and again each time getting new insight, new material and a renewed love for the craft. It's like having a full body massage for your soul."

Tuition: $1,450. Save 10% by signing up with members of your performance group!

It sounds fantastic and I've heard great things!

But god-damn I wish someone would plan something aimed at professional performers that doesn't take place in the height of the summer season.

Have a great time, and I'd love to come sometime to a shorter residency that happens in the fall, spring or winter - does Celebration Barn do that?
