Feminist Acting Class WCCW 2017This past weekend, I got to bask for the second time in the particular glory that is Gina Young’s Feminist Acting Class. Gina teaches a three day workshop focusing on texts and roles for women and by women and gender non-conforming folks that involves multi-layered conversation on the political acts potentially embedded in performance art. How refreshing to be in an environment that questions the very nature of how acting is often cultivated and how actresses are regularly (mis)treated. And what a pleasure to work on some newer scripts, and to do this all with a group of badass feminists coming from various industry disciplines. Did a black cat wander in from the road into the Women’s Center for Creative Work halfway through a circle-up in which we affirmed our magic? Yes, it did. And came back the very next day.
