Beyond Cardboard & Paint
Paint on cardboard or linen sheets is two-dimensional and often a staple of any team’s solution. But what if some of their backdrop, props or costumes had 3-dimensional elements? Teams will expand their creativity to transform style elements from 2D to 3D. Teams will create style elements using a variety of common household materials to bring their creativity to life!
Puns, Parodies & Punchlines
Who doesn’t like a good laugh?! Team members will learn and practice a variety of techniques to incorporate humor into their performances, how to turn ordinary situations into a comical scene and use props to create comedy out of everyday items.
Just imagine if the car prop in your team performance was actually made up of team members! Incorporating movement into performances can take a creative performance to the next level! Team members will let loose and let their imaginations soar in this workshop designed to get teams moving!
