More about Seriously Funny
Devised by the Ensemble
Devised by the ensemble, Seriously Funny will explore how laughter can both isolate and enliven us. Students will participate in workshops with guest artists—including the theater company Liars & Believers—as well as utilize source material like Commedia dell’Arte: An Actors Handbook by John Rudlin to help create their own Commedia dell’Arte characters. Students will also explore how these topics relate to their current lived experience with social media through monologue and viewpoints work, which will be buoyed by material from Sidney Homan and Brian Rhinehart’s Comedy Acting for Theatre. The goal is to create a menagerie of scenes that cohesively tie together under the umbrella of laughter for an evening of both introspective and hilarious theater.
