What should I wear?

 Can you break down the day?


12-3pm: Fundamentals of Moment work

                        (elements, forms, moments, horizontal, 3 questions, etc)

 3-3:30pm: Break! We provide a snack!

3:30-6:30pm: Full Momenting, with focus on prop

After 6:30pm: Join us for a drink at Outlander!

And, one more time, what the fuck is Moment Work?

Moment Work is a technique created by Moises Kaufman and the Tectonic Theatre Project. Emily, Megan and Dayo learned this in a 3 week worksop and subsequent production directed by Andy Paris. Blood Ensemble used Moment Work as the base of our craft.

We want to create an environment where we lead you through this technique, but where we all learn from each other.

Why should I want to learn Moment Work?
