Creative Practice Workshop Series
Feminist Acting Workshop with Gina Young
MON APR 22 + TUE APR 23 // 12noon – 2pm // The Music Center Annex (601 W. Temple St, L.A. 90012)
Feminist Acting Class is a revolutionary approach to actor training that shakes the entire foundation on which it is built. Created by playwright and director Gina Young as a series of experiments to determine if the form and content of an acting class can both be made feminist, FAC incorporates scene study, feminist theory, consciousness raising and community building. Intended for actors who audition and perform regularly, this abridged version of the longer workshop aims to flip the script and expand possibilities for women, trans and nonbinary people in theatre and beyond.
Gina Young is a boundary-pushing playwright, director, and proud new member of the Kilroys. In Los Angeles, her work has been presented by The Hammer, REDCAT, Los Angeles Performance Practice/LAX Festival, USC’s Visions & Voices Series, The LA LGBT Center & the Women’s Center for Creative Work.
