Melodrama Workout - LA

  • ArtWorks Theatre

​It's a dark and stormy night... and you're in it. And may die... Melodrama joins music and drama using spectacle, gesture, pantomime, bold characters and physicality, heroes and villains, the struggle of virtue and evil. The most expressive of the dramatic forms, we play with high stakes and emotions expressing fully in the body. Unlike method based psychological acting, Melodrama is akin to Artaud's "athlete of the emotions."  And with the Grand Guignolers, expect not boring & fun.  All levels welcome. $20 Tickets here.  GRAND GUIGNOLERS - get info
