Performing Personal History
How exciting, courageous and lucky to have reached a point in our lives when we have history. We have a past, knowledge and an experience unlike anyone else’s. A life lived like no one else.This first class of a six-week course offers the opportunity to preserve this history, these memories and share them with others. Participants choose a time, a memory, or a turning point in and write a monologue on that subject. It is up to you how important or life changing the experience is that you wish to share. You can even choose to rewrite history. How would you have acted differently, made different choices and had different outcomes. Would they have changed your life drastically for better or worse - or not at all?This class should be fun, creative, and a chance to express yourself, maybe for the first time. As a performer the instructor, Joannie Mackenzie, has the ability to open some doors that will enable you to feel more comfortable and more confident performing in front of a live audience or a camera. Important: Registered participants should come prepared with a written story or ideas for 4-5 stories. Feel free to bring paper and pen/pencil. Participants will decide on a culminating performance of the monologues.The Instructor: Joannie Mackenzie is an actress, teacher and coach. She has performed in Film, Television, Regional Theatre and Off-Broadway.
