The Return of Block M for Monologue 
with Heidi Taylor
Before joining PTC, Heidi created five solo shows, in addition to a series of original cabarets with indie company Proximity Arts. As a writer-performer, and as a dramaturg, she has wide array of skills to help you create the seeds of a solo performance. Most recently she dramaturged Tetsuro Shigematsu’s Empire of the Son and 1 Hour Photo, and she’s also worked with PTC Associates Jan Derbyshire and Quelemia Sparrow on their solo projects. Participants will work on their feet and on the page, solo and in groups in this immersive introduction to solo creation.

12 maximum. Four 3-hour sessions.
Cost $225
