The Deering Estate at Cutler Presents the Theatre Lab in Partnership with the South Florida Theatre League


In partnership with the South Florida Theatre League, the Deering Estate at Cutler presents an Improvisation Workshop with Michael Yawney as part of its Theatre Lab on Sunday, May 19, 2013 from 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm in the Visitor Center Exhibit Room at the Deering Estate. The Deering Estate at Cutler is located at 16701 SW 72 Avenue. The Improv Class is recommended for ages 16 and older and the cost is $15 per person.

Through physical improvisation, participants will develop skills that deepen their ability to respond to other actors and to the onstage environment. Most American actor training focuses on character and story. The Viewpoints focus on what is happening in the present moment, encouraging performers to follow their gut feeling.

Michael Yawney is a director/playwright whose work has been seen at the Arsht Center and the Public Theater of South Florida. He is currently on the faculty of Florida International University.

The Theatre Lab at the Deering Estate at Cutler is a performance art series and residency opportunity developed in partnership with the South Florida Theatre League. The South Florida Theatre League is an alliance of theatrical organizations and professionals dedicated to nurturing, promoting, and advocating for the growth and prestige of the South Florida theatre industry.
