Needing It: Elements of Solo Performance

Needing It: Elements of Solo Performance

In this text-based solo performance workshop, rooted in NYC's queer and feminist theater traditions, participants will develop techniques for producing raw material for live performance, moving beyond conventional notions of “self-expression” and “autobiography” to something more primal, satisfying, and, inevitably, political.


Dan Fishback is director the Helix Queer Performance Network, a project of Hemi, La MaMa., and BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange. He has a prolific body of work in theater and music. Time Out NY called his musical The Material World one of the "top 10 plays of 2012." He has toured internationally as a musician, both solo and with his band Cheese On Bread.
