Workshops


The first round of our Interlake Winter Warm-Up Workshop Series took place between November 5th - December 10th, where every Thursday one of our Chautauqua artists led a free workshop designed for the digital space. “I was able to stay connected virtually and mindfully. To be a part of a small group was wonderful! The length of the workshop was so great — I felt very lucky Joseph decided to go past his time to educate us...a great experience. I can’t believe it was free,” -Danielle Friesen, local illustrator & graphic designer who connected with TPM during our artist meetings.

Stay tuned for the launch of our second round of Interlake Winter Warm-Up Workshops!
Free theatrical workshops for anyone with a keen interest to try something new or for professionals.

Clowndations: (An Introduction): Always wanted to try clown but didn’t have the guts? Maybe you thought, “Clowns are too CREEPY”?! Lucky for you, a true clown is not creepy, and you can test my theory from the safety of your own living room! This an introductory workshop to clown and is being offered in anticipation of the IRL “Clowndations” workshops that will occur once the lockdown clears. Somewhere over the Rainbow, we clowns are clowning around in a room together (I can see it now!) For the time being, the Zoom room will offer an excellent opportunity to do clown work in the comfort of your own home before showing it off IRL *Tocatta by Bach plays*. This intro workshop aims to provide some ‘clowndemental’ tools to inspire artists to bring something new to their projects while hibernating at home. Artists are encouraged (but not required to) bring a piece they are currently working on or are familiar with. Pieces could range anywhere from a dance, a song, a poem, a monologue, or a script.

Clowndations: (An Online Extravaganza) is being offered in anticipation of the IRL “Clowndations” workshops that will occur when the lockdown clears! The Zoom room will offer an excellent opportunity to try clown work in the comfort of your own home before showing it off IRL *Beethoven’s 5th symphony plays*. We will ‘just keep clowning, just keep clowning’ until we are found perpetually blobulating in a clown room together. Over 3 days, this workshop aims to provide the artist with some ‘clowndemental’ tools to inspire something fresh and new for one’s artistic projects whilst hibernating at home. Participants are asked to bring a piece that they are familiar with, so that it can be further developed (à la clown) in class. Pieces could range anywhere from dance, song, devised work, a poem, a monologue, and scripts, and excerpts must be no longer than 2 minutes.
