STAR WARS: A study group adventure
Whether you’re intimately familiar with that galaxy far, far away or you don’t know a Yoda from a Yaddle, this examination of George Lucas’ seminal space saga will provide playwrights, actors, and directors with tools directly applicable to the crafts of theatremaking, as well as serve as the ideal preparatory experience for the December 18 release of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens.
Through master lectures, short exercises, and open discussions, this class – equal parts TED Talk and book club – will follow a “Machette Order” viewing of the saga, with topics moderated by Star Wars mega-nerd David Ian Lee, an internationally produced playwright, who has lectured at national theatre conferences on playmaking and its intersection with geekery, and whose YouTube video “Star Wars: Duel of the Cake” has gone, what the kids are calling, “viral.”
The course will culminate in a big ol’ party in celebration of Episode VII’s premiere featuring readings from William Shakespeare’s Star Wars as well as general merrymaking and mayhem. May the Force be with you and Happy Life Day.
Class meets once weekly, Thursdays, 6-8pm @ Actors Brige Studio
