(8/27) East Meets West: Theater Workshop with Lanny Harrison

Movement. Meditation. Music.
Back by popular demand for a fifth year!
Taught by actress/performance artist Lanny Harrison, the workshop will be held on four Thursdays, August 7, 14, 28, and Sept. 4, from 7–9 PM and will be held off-site in the instructor’s East Meredith studio/barn. Students can enroll in all four classes, or take separate classes for $15 each.
In these playful & provoking sessions, participants will discover some of the myriad characters who dwell within.
Through exercises that emphasize imagination, improvisation, and transformation, Lanny will lead the group on a voyage of theatrical exploration and contemplative practice.

Music, live or chosen from an eclectic sound library, will be an integral part of each evening.
No prior experience in theater or dance is required—just an open mind & a body wearing comfortable clothes.
