The New Century Follies production company and Byrd Productions
is thrilled to present two workshops by dynamic theatrical performer Paco Fish!
"Power in Silence"
There is power in silence and strength in stillness. In this class, we will explore stillness and movement as contrasting tools for communication through games and exercises in mime. We will focus on clarity of movement, double takes, and comedic beats. Students should wear comfortable clothes in which they can move freely.
"Creating Character and Embodying Emotion"
Using guided visualizations and physical explorations, we will discover many different personalities hidden within our bodies and the physical ways they express themselves. We will learn how to create clear characters and express distinct emotions with our whole bodies. Students should wear comfortable clothes in which they can move freely.
Paco Fish thrives on duality. He is a dynamic performer of spoken and physical comedy, burlesque, boylesque, stilt walking, clown, mime, and a variety of other media. Most of Paco's characters exist in multiple forms and his acts are visual representations of the transitions between these coexisting identities. Whether playing a freshwater turtle in forbidden saltwater love, a tramp with a deal with the devil, or the whole history of modern France, Paco dismantles assumptions and defies convention with humor and passion. He is the founder of Baltimore's Sticky Buns Burlesque and
currently holds the titles, "King of Southern Exposure," "King of Carolina Sweet Tease," and "Most Humorous" from both the Great Burlesque Exposition and The Carolina Burlesque Festival.
"The Burlesque Vanguard Tour" is a year-long international burlesque tour organized by boylesquer,Paco Fish. The 52-week tour will be spent living in a minivan, performing, and teaching burlesque in all 48 contiguous US states, the District of Columbia, and 3 Canadian provinces. Throughout the journey,
Paco will be joining local performers (including The New Century Follies and Byrd Productions on October 12th at Just Off Broadway Theater) for a different live entertainment experience each night, and documenting his adventures at www.burlesquevanguard.com
