A Unique Opportunity for Performers: CABARET MASTERCLASS

On Tuesday April 20…

 Want to do a better audition?

 Give a better performance?

 Create a better show?

Want to learn how to prepare a song for cabaret?

 

Choosing and workshopping cabaret songs is one of the things new performers seem to find difficult and stressful when creating their own shows.   On Tuesday April 20 at 8.00 pm we’ll be running another of the popular cabaret masterclasses at The Butterfly Club: a chance not only to hear useful techniques for selecting and arranging cabaret repertoire, but also see performers in action analyzing, workshopping and performing their songs in progress.

The class is designed for:

1. Singers developing audition songs or looking to improve their performance skills

2. Performers workshopping new material for upcoming shows

3. New artists who are interested in finding out about cabaret

 

If you’ve been interested in the Creating Solo Cabaret course, but are not ready to take the plunge, this is a great chance to come along and see how a cabaret workshop is run.  

Plus, you only pay normal Club ticket prices ($22/$17) rather than class fees.   Bargain!

This is an unusual opportunity to see cabaret creating in action!

*A masterclass is an open cabaret lesson where you, the audience, get to learn about the craft by:

1. Hearing artist and director Dr. Kim Edwards talk about the cabaret genre and demands of cabaret performing

2. Seeing cabaret artists perform songs they’re working on

3. Experiencing a unique public workshop as the artists are taught how to develop and improve their cabaret material

Applications Closing: Three Places Left For Cabaret Course

Last chance for Creating Solo Cabaret course in 2009

Applications are now closing for the August-September course at The Butterfly Club, Melbourne’s premiere cabaret venue.   Creating Solo Cabaret is the only intensive short course in Australia on developing professional cabaret, and co-ordinator Dr. Kim Edwards is an expert in her field of cabaret and an experienced director, dramaturg, writer and performer.

There are currently only three places still available for this unique opportunity.   Moreover, the successful applicants for this month’s course enjoy the bargain of two special bonus features*, while paying the regular price.

1. The Creating Solo Cabaret course now runs over six weeks, rather than five.   That means a bonus workshop focussed entirely on developing songs, and designed specifically around the repertoire of students involved.

2. There are now two Performance Nights instead of one, whereupon students have the opportunity to perform their developing work twice with the benefit of additional feedback.

* The curriculum and structuring changes have been made in response to enthusiastic student feedback, with requests for additional class and contact time with the co-ordinator.   They are also the result of audience demand, whereby Performance Nights were continually selling out, and friends and family were missing out on the debut of Melbourne’s newest cabaret artists.
