Welcome to Elizabeth Morris’ “Face and Body” drama workshop. This workshop will happen on August 27 - 28, 10am - 4pm. Elizabeth is a professional Deaf actor who has had a big passion for acting since as a young child, in theatre and film. She has 18 years of professional acting experience. Also, she teaches drama workshops for children, youth, and adults (including actors, artists, teachers, and sign language interpreters). In this drama workshop, she will teach the technique of Visual Vernacular in storytelling; the technique that is primarily used by Deaf artists; using movements, iconic signs, gestures, and facial expression. We will be doing drama games, improvisation, mimes, folklore stories, guessing who the celebrity is….And more surprises! This will be a great and fun week of exploring how to tell a story by using our faces and body. Join us for a fun drama workshop!
