Buffoonery Acting and Performer’s Mastery 2013!

Buffoonery Workshops is excited to announce a unique venture with The Performer’s Mastery of Vancouver for 2013. For a lower combined price acting students can take advantage of both the Buffoonery Acting Workshop and the Performer’s Mastery in order to have an amazing duo of career and personal growth building.

I, Trilby, took the Performer’s Mastery in July 2012 and discovered a challenging 3 days where your “stuff” gets addressed. This workshop is great for anyone, really, but for performers who want to be authentic in their work, the Performer’s Mastery is a direct way in.

Henry Mah, one of the two facilitators (the other being veteran Linda Darlow), subsequently zealously took the Buffoonery Workshop in August.

We saw that both our workshops encourage actors and non-actors out of their comfort zones, and into their truth with very different yet, complimentary, methods. Over coffee we decided that in making it possible for people to take both workshops at a lower cost, we could help more people attain their dreams.

A Conversation with Jeff Hyslop….

What does one limit themselves to asking when doing an interview with one of the most prolific and successful Canadian Triple Threats, actor, singer, dancer, the notable Jeff Hyslop? (Actually, “Quadruple” as he is also a director.) My challenge was to direct the myriad questions I had and the stories he had into the short, but time-stopping two hours we shared. Publicist Cheryl Hutcherson set the scene comfortably and we soon sailed into the creative, exciting, rich world of Jeff Hyslop.

But, before I pull the anchor, let me tell you first and foremost Mr. Hyslop will be appearing in the show “Victor Victoria” directed by Mark Carter, opening at the Metro Theatre on March 17, running through until April 7. This exceptional opportunity to watch, in my opinion, a Canadian icon that has done everything from Gilbert of “Anne of Green Gables” to the Phantom in “Phantom of the Opera” and numerous television appearances including the famous “Today’s Special” and much more, is not to be missed. I hope you won’t.
