Workshop Overview

What is your story? Flying Solo is an interactive workshop that focuses on the creation of narrative-based solo performance. Using your own life experiences, Flying Solo provides artists with various exercises, concepts, and explorations in Characterization [Chekhov], Time, Space, Memory, and Senses [Viewpoints], and Solo Performance Pedagogy culminating in preparing their own one-person show. 


Developing a solo performance is an on-going process and this workshop aides in its progression. You do not have to be actor to participate in this workshop! While these forms exist independently, Flying Solo unique structure merges these methods to achieve the following objectives:


  • Focus on the individual in finding a subject matter that motivates and sustains them.
  • Develop the physical, vocal and character-transformation skills necessary to sustain a dynamic solo performance onstage.
  • Explore exercises in character development, improvisation, narratives, oral history.
