Silence is Golden – Marc Majcher (ASTN)
Ninety percent of communication happens through facial expression and body language, so why should your improv rely on words? This workshop will help you get out of your head and into your body, inspired both by classic silent performers and modern clowning and movement techniques. Learn to break the language barrier and use your whole self to communicate your character’s intentions, desires, endowments, and stories.
Marc Majcher is an improviser, game designer, and technical instructor based in Austin, Texas. He has been performing, teaching, and directing improv since 2005, and has been a part of countless mainstage productions at the Hideout Theatre. His stage experience ranges from short form shows like Maestro and Theatresports to dramatic long-form narrative formats including improvised Shakespeare, Dickens, burlesque, pulp action stories, weird horror, epic samurai films, Chekhov plays, experimental formats inspired by Samuel Beckett, and many more. The cast of his production of The Black Vault went on to produce improvised radio dramas in the style of H.P. Lovecraft, and Marc and his partner Jayme Ramsay were recently awarded the B. Iden Payne awards for Outstanding Direction and Outstanding Production of Improvisation for their work with Hurly Burly.
