Inner Beast · Sunday, October 28 · 3 – 6 pm

How are we as humans still animals? What is underneath our willingness to be our perfect selves? When you strip away the performance of fitting into society what is left?

Just in time for Halloween, this workshop we will explore our inner demons, creatures, monsters, ghouls and whatever in between. Through movement, costume making, and text, participants will create work to examine these beasts within and create new collaborative work. As an added bonus you will be able to take home your costume creations for an extra Halloween treat.

This gym will take place at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, NY. Please RSVP to receive additional information on location and what to bring.

Artist Gym is Electric Eye Ensemble’s monthly creation and creativity workshop for people of all backgrounds to create new work in a supportive and low-pressure environment. Each Gym is themed and facilitators lead participants through an exploration of that theme using various artistic exercises. Artist Gym is ideal for professional theater artists, and the artistically inclined of all backgrounds. No prior theatrical training is needed, only an open mind and a readiness to collaborate. Artist Gym is dedicated to building a community of diverse individuals who value collaboration and art-making in New York City.

“Thank you for bringing together a community of artists. I think art is about more than just the performance, it’s about thinking about the world and the context we make our art in. Artist Gym gives room for questioning our values and perception, which creates art that’s more current and more vital.”

“I had a great time meeting and playing with all the artists and artistically inclined.”

“Artist Gym is a fantastic resource that I haven’t seen or experienced elsewhere — the opportunity for artists and non-artists alike to come together in a low pressure environment and partake in the joy of creation.”

“Thank you for the gift of space and intention … it is rare to find a time and place to play with a willing community of people.”
