Instructor: Salty Brine
Salon is just what the name suggests: a gathering of stimulating people who come together with the purpose of sharing ideas, experiences, questions and art. Through a multitude of means, the class explores the possibilities and opportunities that come along with a life in the theater arts. A weekly grab-bag of guests provides inspiration and information, each in a unique and personal way. Guest faculty members lead writing workshops and play readings that give students the opportunity to begin a deep and hands-on exploration of theatrical texts. Additionally, the classroom exists as a playground for art-making/art-sharing. Students present art projects to their peers using various media, built from and expressing their individual New York City experiences.
