Upstate Theatre Project Presents Laughing in the Face
As part of the build-up to their visit to Newbridge with “THE ONES WHO KILL SHOOTING STARS” (May 7th) the internationally renowned Upstate Theatre workshop team will offer this unique class in absurd and comedy theatre.
Conall Quinn’s play deals in an “adsurdist” way with one curious aspect of Irish history and politics, namely our neutrality during World War II, exploring the madness of war and poking irreverent fun at the complexity of Irish neutrality then and now.
“Laughing in the Face” is a workshop aimed at adults and older teenagers, which explores the art of comedy and satire in performance. From the ancient Greeks to Spike Milligan to Monty Python, artists and comics have always sought to engage with the crazy world around them by laughing at it. This is an opportunity to learn the basics of comedy improvisation and create sketches that send up your favourite daft politicians, outrageous news scandals, absurd school rules or whatever is on your mind.
Pure enjoyment with Upstate – renowned from New York to Oldtown for their fun community theatre workshops!
