1+1 = EVERYTHING! or SHARING THE SPOTLIGHT
Dynamic Duets with Kitten N’ Lou
Being part of a duo may seem like half the work of being a soloist, but it’s more than twice as complicated! This workshop is beneficial for all levels of duet experience, from long standing duet teams to soloists who may find themselves occasionally onstage at the same time as another performer, be it another burlesquer, the host, or a stage kitten. This workshop will concentrate on three main concepts: unison impulse, sharing the spotlight (aka giving and taking focus) and our personal favorite, the trifecta of theatrical relationships between two performers and an audience. We will explore these three concepts through improvised exercises, theatrical role playing, and choreography. We will also discus how these concepts can help you entertainingly get out of pretty much any onstage burlesque catastrophe. Kitten and Lou have extensive experience working in duet form both together and separately, and are excited to share the tools and concepts that inform both the development and the performance of their work.
Performers are welcome to participate in this workshop with a partner or on their own!
Sunday 2.3. 90 minutes
Playing With Gender in Burlesque:
Borrowing from the art of drag, Kitten N’ Lou will teach you how to both “butch up” and “femme up” your performance. We will begin with movement exercises that explore stereotypically masculine and feminine attributes. Students will then learn a piece of set choreography that performers will be coached in making individual choices throughout in order to develop their own character’s gender expression, be it overtly masculine, hyper feminine, or any unique blend of the two!
Sunday 2.3. 90 minutes
More to come from Kitten´n´Lou
