The Fiasco Six Week Conservatory gave 16 students the opportunity to be immersed in the textual, vocal, physical, and aesthetic techniques that are at the core of Fiasco’s ensemble-based, text-driven approach to making theater; an approach that gives actors maximum agency and pleasure in their process. Students took classes in Shakespearean verse and prose, text analysis and conceptualization, clown and games, voice and speech, yoga and dance. They put these skills into practice in group rehearsal on multiple classical and modern texts over the course of the six weeks.

We plan to offer another Conservatory in the fall of 2020, sign up here to receive announcements about applications.
