Nasty Women Get Noisy is a series of workshops throughout our 2017-2018 season in which Artistic Director, Tina Taylor, will be working with female performers on finding their stronger, deeper, louder selves.
Tina will work with small groups on ways to break out of preconceived ideas of how women should appear in stage roles. Re-defining ourselves as a force to be reckoned with, these classes will help build the framework for female performers to move our secondary and peripheral stories to the foreground, to reject victim-based characterizations, to deepen our voices, enlarge our footprints, and demand attention beyond that of the purely sexual in order to replace outworn stereotypes with powerful, recognizable, and real nasty women!
As we strive within the theatre community to gain greater parity in the realms of playwrights, directors, creative team players and actors, let’s take a moment to ask, “How have we been subjugated in our theatrical roles, how have we been marginalized in our character choices, how have we been silenced in our slim vocal repertoire? And what can we do about it?”
Workshops will include vocal and physical improvisation, script exploration, discussion, creative writing, heavy boots and a great deal of heart.
You can attend one workshop, or enjoy the whole series. Participants may sign up to perform work generated through this class at Lunatico’s “Nasty Women Get Noisy Festival” May 4-6, 2018.

TINA TAYLOR has been empowering female performers for years to pull on their heavy boots, take to the stage with a roar, and be fearless in exploring their uglier, louder, messier, wilder selves. Tina strives hard to create working environments in which women can thrive on their own terms.
