Using techniques from clown, mask, and commedia dell’arte, a street performance workshop this Saturday covers the principles of building quick and dirty scenarios for anywhere from parades to street corners.
Come to the OAP Hall in Cumberland ready to move and play from from 3:30 to 5 p.m. and explore character types, group rhythm and ensemble energy. There’s no charge and no performance experience required.
Cultural organizer Dan Vie of the Community Arts Workshop Society has created for public spaces and festivals since the early ’80s, including as the producer of East Vancouver’s Carnival Band, the Festival of Fools, and the Alice in Wonderland Festival.
