Wed 4/14- Every song, every story, every picture and every play is political. In this 90 minute workshop, ensemble member Neil Bhandari leads participants through a series of exercises connecting the personal and political, finding convergence via task + text, and honing the individual voice amidst the unending--and often overwhelming--digital haze. With Ensemble member Neil Bhandari.
Welcome to Neo-Toolbox, an initiative of weekly online classes on the aesthetic and practices of Neo-Futurism.
Starting April 14th, we will be offering a series of special drop-in online Neo-Futurists workshops on Wednesdays nights at 7:30PM.
Individual classes are 90 min, and will involve in-class creation and sharing. Classes are drop-in, so you can attend any one you want, no prerequisites. Sign ups are cut off at 6PM on Wednesdays, or when class is full.
Taught by Neil Bhandari, Jasmine Henri Jordan, Connor Shioshita Pickett, Nick Hart, Ida Cuttler and Trent Lunsford.
Wed 4/28 - In this class we will use instruments and digital tools we have at hand to create quick, catchy songs rooted in our everyday experiences. With Ensemble Member Connor Shioshita Pickett.
Wed 5/5 - In this class, we will rewrite, critique, and adapt a famous piece of literature into a devised filmed digital art piece using Surrealist techniques and exercises, collecting and collaging found text, audio and video with the true personal stories of participants. All made in 90 minutes. Practicing the Neo-futurists' tenet of brevity, we will be moving quite fast. With Ensemble Member Nick Hart.
