Rotate Theatre Acting Workshop: Monologues & Solos is a consent-conscious workshop series inviting artists to embrace curiosity, collaboration, and multidirectional learning while rehearsing monologues and/or solo musical numbers.
Each week consists of a highly modifiable warm-up and an acting game, followed by an opportunity for each participant to play with a short piece with the help of Rotate directors and the other participants, and concludes with a closing activity. Participants have the option of cold-reading a new piece each week, exploring one piece over the course of the series, or anything in between. Those working on songs, may rehearse a capella or provide a recorded backing track.
Participants in the fall 2023 series are invited (but not required!) to perform a piece in Rotate Theatre's winter event, Stage Test: An Evening of Works in Development, on February 17 at the MYArts building in Madison, WI.
Rotate Theatre's fall programming includes a virtual Writing Workshop on Tuesdays running in tandem with the Acting Workshop.
