Intro To TOO MUCH LIGHT at Victory Gardens Application


Victory Gardens’ Intro to Too Much Light is a class that teaches the basics of Neo-Futurist writing and performance. Over the course of 10 weekly 3-hour sessions, students will explore the process of creating a 2-minute play in the Too Much Light style, writing and crafting pieces based on true life experiences. The class will introduce core Neo-Futurist tenets of honesty, brevity, audience connection and random chance, and will examine specific play formulas and styles that recur on our stage– including monologues, object theatre, and even the difficult shortie play. The workshop mimics the actual weekly process of the show Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind and culminates in a student-written performance of Too Much Light at Victory Gardens on August 13th, presented and performed for the public. In partnership with Victory Gardens’ Artist Development Workshop, Intro to TML at VG offers an opportunity to study the fundamentals of Neo-Futurism in a physically accessible setting, with accommodations provided for any student with a disability. Artists with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply, and will be given preference in acceptance into the workshop. (The class is open to everyone; however we will strive to maintain a majority of artists with disabilities in the class.)
