Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department faculty members Michael Brown and Marc Frost will lead a workshop on “Masks: Presence, Potential and Play” on Saturday, June 4, as part of the Third Annual Physical Festival Chicago, which runs June 3-11 at Stage 773, 1225 W. Belmont, in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood.
Frost, the festival’s co-founder and co-artistic director, and Brown both teach movement and physical theatre at the Columbia College Chicago Theatre Department, where Brown is an assistant professor and Frost is an adjunct faculty member. Both Brown and Frost are alumni of the London International School of Performing Arts (LISPA).
Physical Festival is an annual festival of contemporary visual and physical theatre that strives to bring to Chicago new forms of theatre that are being performed around the world. The festival presents work that pursues storytelling through primarily physical means, whose aim is to create original stories which start and end with the body as the foundational textual source. This year’s Physical Festival features ensembles and solo artists from Brazil, Poland, and Spain as well as from New York and Chicago.
