I teach visual storytelling tools for performance and devising. My laboratory classes are on your feet and participatory. They incorporate Margolis Method exercises and improvisations for performers and directors. Empowering students to foster their own ideas is paramount. The training also emphasizes true collaboration between living performers and inanimate storytellers such as architecture, lighting, objects, and puppets. LINK to
