Advanced Fooling Summer School

Holly Stoppit’s Advanced Fooling Summer School is a 5-day advanced course for anyone who’s previously completed a 5-day Fooling Summer School.

This 5-day course builds on the 5-day fooling summer school and is designed to take 8 brave explorers deeper into their fooling practice. It will be a group journey that will support you to take bigger risks with the solo form. There will be opportunities to:

• deepen your understanding of your masks
• explore the structures which contain solo improvised performance 
• blast through personal blocks to creativity
• generate raw material which can be used to devise theatre
• deal with doubt and fear (externalise the inner critic and put it to work)
• further develop your sensitive, connected, alive and dangerous performance style
• learn tools to safely bring vulnerability and authentic feelings into any style of performance/real life interaction
• practice listening to yourself and being curious in your response to what you find.
