JAW Labs: The Subtext is the Text with JAW Actor Maiya Reaves

Event Details
The Armory: Vigeland Rehearsal Hall
Sorry, this event is SOLD OUT.
Refund Policy

In this workshop, Maiya will teach the fundamentals of psychological gestures (physical action that reveals intention) as we craft and refine the play within the play. Connecting our movement and intentions, Maiya will take us through exercises that help us get lost in the driving needs and desires of a character, while we find a fuller, more activated performance.

Lab space is limited, so admission is by lottery. To enter the lottery, email education@pcs.org with your choice of labs in order of preference.
