Week Long Bouffon Intensive with Eric Davis, aka Red Bastard!
Sept 24 to Sept 30
Mon, Tue, Wed - 6pm to 10pm // Sat, Sun - 10am to 2pm (20hr total)
Workshop cost: $400
Mockery, mischief and mayhem await you as the creator of Red Bastard teases out your inner BOUFFON.
For one full week in September; creators, performance artists, curious humans of all backgrounds are invited to dive full force into the world of Bouffon to learn the ways of the Red Bastard.
Find your critical fun as we seek laughter through explosive parody, strange bodies, and a nudge from the devil himself.
In the world of Bouffon, the audience is the joke. This pack of grotesque outsiders engage and parody the audience with great joy, intelligence and charm in order to expose hypocrisy and flaws. To play as Bouffon is to celebrate paradox! They are disgusting, yet beautiful. They hate you, yet they flatter you.
The following 20 hour week-long intensive was designed for those who are working and/or performing. We completely understand that any robust schedule will not be able to fit the needs of all participants but hope that this gets close to a majority of those interested in taking the voyage.
Catch the limited run of Red Bastard: Lie With Me at Theater Wit, September 27 - Sept 30th, 8pm
