Super stoked that I am invited to present at the Educational Theatre Association (EdTA)’s National Conference in St. Pete Beach, FL.
I’ll be teaching two workshops.
Stand up Comedy and Why We Laugh, which is about just that. What laughter is, and how as humans we use it to relate to one another.
And also Your [Naked] Body as a Costume, which is about using your physicality as a performer and also a look into the psychology of physicality as just people. What we’re saying with our bodies as we move around, walk around, or even just stand.
I’m a huge fan of the EdTA. They’re the people who run the Thespian Society, which I was a part of in high school. They do great things. They sponsor and develop creativity and novelty in students across the country and the world. They gave me my first taste at being on stage, telling a story, and what it feels like to connect with an audience. And they also give oddballs like myself a place to call home when I didn’t really fit in anywhere else in high school.
I’m extremely honored to present. I owe a great deal of debt to these people, and I definitely wouldn’t be where I am without them.
