Grimm's Fairy Tales Retold in Video Games $500.00
EK Theater presents
“Grimm’s Fairy Tales: Retold in Video Games"




The 5-day camp offers young gamers the unique opportunity to use their knowledge of today’s video games to create new theater pieces out of the Grimm brothers’ darker tales. Campers will select the stories, construct scenes using video games, control video game characters, and speak lines aloud. The camp will culminate in a performance for parents that will take place during Friday’s session.

Eddie Kim and students from his EK Theater program, which is based out of the Pierrepont School in Westport, CT, will be on hand to guide the campers through the entire process from creation to performance. Mr. Kim came up with video game puppetry in 2007. His theater pieces use games such as Halo: Reach, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and Shadow of the Colossus. They have been presented at venues such as the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, MA. The New York Times has called his work “an impressive feat of engineering, coordination, and storytelling."

The camp is open to middle school students. Campers will need laptops, Minecraft accounts, and familiarity with video games. They also will need to bring a packed lunch each day. Scholarships available for eligible participants.

Théâtre de Sources Improbables $400.00
Théâtre de Sources Improbables



Teens and adults will come together to create theater from the unlikeliest of sources - a collection of spam email belonging to playwright and performer Ayun Halliday. We’ll draw from a wide panoply of options for bringing this raw material to the stage, including puppetry, song, confessional monologues, games of telephone, storytelling, academic lecture, interview and extreme physicality. No performance experience necessary - by week’s end, you will be part of a highly respected flash theater ensemble, versed in the arts of low budget costuming, props and guerrilla marketeering. Share your existing skills. Learn a lifetime of new ones! And for god’s sake, invite your friends to our final performance Friday at 5.

Bring your preferred writing implements and a daily snack.

Ayun Halliday spent a decade writing and performing in hundreds of short plays with the NeoFuturists. She is the Chief Primatologist of the East Village Inky zine, and author of seven books, including No Touch Monkey! And Other Travel Lessons Learned Too Late. Her most recent theatrical creations are Fawnbook, a post-digital pre-apocalyptic investigation of social media speak, and The Mermaid’s Legs, an experimental retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid, created with the help of ten home-schooled teens.

Physical Comedy Intensive $250.00
PHYSICAL COMEDY INTENSIVE





What makes it funny? What makes it repeatable? How do we approach writing the funny?

This class will tackle these questions and more while we explore physical comedy from a clown point of view. Expand your physical vocabulary, develop tools for playing comedy using the techniques of slapstick, improvisation, partnership, comic timing, and accidents in solo, duo, and group exercises. Through active games and dynamic exercises we will build short pieces of material using these skills. Physical comedy is funny within context and because of the reaction of the performer, so we will combine technique with context to discover the funny.

Taught by International performing and teaching artist, Hilary Chaplain "A Little Tramp – Lucy Ricardo hybrid"


"Hilary Chaplain is a brilliant teacher and performer, and her physical comedy class is AWESOME. She creates a friendly, fun, and hard working environment for people at many different levels of experience.
