CFS Soho Workshop Weekends: Lucy McCormick
Sat, 22 Oct 2016, 11:00 – Sun, 23 Oct 2016, 17:00 BST
Lucy McCormick Exposed! Three Easy Steps to becoming a Triple Threat
Artists, Performers, Curious Humans, join self-confessed triple threat artist Lucy McCormick for a weekend of absurdity, ineptitude, enthusiasm and failure. Interests in pop iconography, image culture and mass consumption will make way for experimentations in mess, destruction and despair.
This workshop will give participants an insight into Lucy's performance-making practice via research, writing, devising, choreography and karaoke. The session will be propelled by, but not restricted to, Lucy's process around de-constructing source text, mindful-melodrama and stealing structure.
The workshop will include heavy elements of dance and song, although no prior experience is necessary - amateurism is welcomed.
22/10/16 & 23/10/16 - 11am - 5pm
Standard - £150
Concessions - £100
