Workshop with Poor Dog Group
Come explore the collaborative process of contemporary performance with the artists of Poor Dog Group (PDG). This four hour session will expose and examine the unique artistic practices of the PDG collaborators. Participants will learn how to build a new theatrical experience in a collaborative environment; learning the fundamentals of constructing an experimental performance piece with the tools of original story structure, character development, movement and text.
The workshop can accommodate 20 participants. Prior experience not required.
Seeking female volunteers to perform in Poor Dog Group's Dionysia
We are seeking up to 20 female volunteers (ages 18–81) to participate in a silent Greek chorus as part of the performances of Dionysia by Poor Dog Group.
The time commitment required:
Rehearsal on Wednesday, November 9 from 6–9 PM
Dress rehearsal on Thursday, November 10 from 7–9 PM (you may leave after the first act)
Performances on Friday, November 11 and Saturday, November 12 from 7–10 PM
We are looking for performers or non-performers who have an interest in contemporary theater and a willingness to share the stage with Poor dog Group's stellar actors! The idea will be that you would enter the stage for 5-10 minutes as a mob of silent onlookers. You will have a simple movement sequence to perform. Clothes are casual and your own.
Poor Dog Group is a new Los Angeles-based collective of like-minded performance and media artists committed to nurturing a distinctive aesthetic through adventurous collaboration. Their mission is to develop original theatrical expression through the creation of new work and radical reexaminations of existing texts; to redefine, educate and expand perceptions of performance and theatrical form; to have an accessibility for a new audience; to use experimental methods of the body, text, and technology; to craft new American theater; and to develop the cultivation of a limitless and periodic space.
