The Idiot Workshop is a meeting place for performers, comedians, dancers, artists, musicians, and others who are looking for the thing. It is a place to be surprised.
Rather than beginning with the basics, stepping in gently, building little by little, we start by throwing you into the deep end. There is no ceiling.
We help to develop and refine your voice, a voice driven by you, an individual, not a character so much as a heightened sort of self, your sense of play and absurdity, where you remain grounded in who you are, in ways that are known and unknown. There are no rules.
Access the unconscious, illogical, nonsensical, absurd place of movement, speech, being, and play. We look for corporeal logic. And we learn the most when we are having fun, when we get lost in the fun, and discover ourselves somewhere else.
