The Play is the Thing!

Saturday, March 18, 12-2pm

$20.00 per particpant

The Play is the Thing: Using Playfulness in Theater Performance is a two hour master class in the art of having fun on stage. From a background in clown training, Kat Single-Dain will give you tools for presence and improvisation that can be applied to any live performance art.

We're thrilled to welcom Kat Single-Dain, Artistic Director at the Dusty Flowerpot Cabarte Society and member of the The Myrtle Family Band to Powell Riviera to indulge us in a good ol' fashioned theatre workshop.

More about Kat Single-Dain

Kat Single-Dain is Artistic Director of the Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret Society, producer of the annual Parade of Lost Souls and is the creator director choreographer of The Scarlet Queen of Mercy and Hard Times Hit Parade, two immersive theatrical extravaganzas that sold out in Vancouver and have taken their turns touring BC with up to a 61 person cast. She also tours under the guise of an over-the-hill chorus girl in Gloria's Happy Hour and sings and dances in The Myrtle Family Band.

Kat graduating with honors from the University of California Berkeley in 2006 and specializes in the intersection of contact improvisation, vintage swing dance, and physical theater. This rare niche that has her traveling to teach everywhere from Nevada, USA to Paris, France.

“When the dancers launch into director Kat Single-Dain’s energetic, swing-inspired choreography, you can feel the sap starting to run in the trees.” -COLIN THOMAS, The Georgia Straight

“Kat Single-Dain has one of those resumes that compel instant credibility. Seeing her in action proves her distinctions are entirely deserved.” -ELIZABETH NOLAN, The Driftwood

"If you don't know Kat -- she is a perpetual motion moving bundle of creativity... one of those blessed with being born to dance. Her energy is irresistible. She's in it for all the right reasons, and when she dances with you -- you can do no wrong, no matter how many left feet were left at your feet :-)" -Philip Clement, Student
