2:30-3:30pm: Curls & Cat Eyes w/ Kinki Kalypso
This workshop will entail learning the basics of curling your own hair with a flat iron and/or curling iron, as well as tips and tricks to mastering the cat eye. Tools needed will be hairbrush, rat tail comb, duck tail or butterfly clips, working hairspray, heat protectant, curl pins, (encouraged but not necessary) curling iron and/or flat iron (must be no larger than one inch) and your favorite liquid eyeliner. We will go over what type of products to use to prep and work with the hair as well as techniques and direction for curl patterns and proper heat setting for different hair types. We all love a good cat eye, so I will go over my personal techniques to achieving that dramatic winged eyeliner.
3:30-4:30pm:All About That Face w/ Emeraude LaStarr
You’ve dialed in your choreography. Your costume is bedazzled to perfection. You’re ready to tell your story. Whether you’re performing for an intimate gathering of 30 or a theater filled with 300, your goal is to engage your audience. Aside from eye contact, how do you, the performer make that connection? This workshop is designed to allow each participant a safe environment in which to explore their individual emotional range and relationship to an audience through facial expressions and body language. In addition to facial expressions we will discuss and participate in Mind Body activities that cover various topics including emotional comfort zones, sensuality, energy, breath, touch, and composure. This workshop will benefit all performance artists – beginners to seasoned!
