Here's how it works: you fly out to Santa Fe and we work one-on-one in my studio, churning out your show in four days. Then, we work with that raw material via Skype sessions and/or phone sessions until you have a solo show ready to go into production.
Included in the boot camp is housing (your own private room and bath with separate entrance) in my gorgeous old adobe home outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
New offering: For those who absolutely cannot manage to come to New Mexico, I now offer my Solo Performance Bootcamps exclusively on Skype from the comfort of your own home. Either way, the process itself is rich, deep and profound.
You may begin the process with just a glimmer of what you want to say. That is fine. It is my job to support you through all the way through the development of your solo show script. I've developed a process to coax the most compelling stories out of you and onto the page. You will leave Santa Fe with the raw material for a script in hand. You just need to show up with your openness and your willingness to explore. You will improvise stories and characters from your life. We will also take a look at dominant and recurring themes that begin to emerge as we work together. It is an intimate, creative and life-changing process.
By committing to the Solo Performance Bootcamp, you give yourself the gift of claiming your very essence onstage.
You will be improvising, writing, brainstorming, moving and creating a show in a totally safe and supportive environment. It took me eleven years to develop this process for my first show, "Honeymoon In India," which I wrote and performed to critical acclaim in 1995. It was my very first solo show and was named one of the Top 10 Performances of the Year by the Santa Fe Reporter.
Since then, I have worked with hundreds of actors, writers and "regular people" to refine the process of developing powerful and unique one person shows.
