- Published: August 12, 2010
Antioch alum Mark Greenfield returns to Yellow Springs to host a workshop on putting on theater productions in outdoor and non-traditional venues and to stage his rendition of “Oedipus Rex” in the Antioch amphitheater.
Organized in collaboration with Antioch College and Nonstop Liberal Arts Institute, the week-long workshop, “Make Theatre Anywhere,” runs from 6 to 8 nightly starting Friday, Aug. 13, and ending Thursday, Aug. 19.
Greenfield and other workshop presenters will teach how to use movement and vocal techniques, mask work, chorus involvement, group improvisation methods and stage choreography in an outdoor setting for $35 for the entire week or $7 for each individual night.
Workshop participants will create their own 15-minute short play, which will be performed in conjunction with the staging of “Oedipus Rex” by Greenfield’s production company, Faux-Real Theatre, on Aug. 20, Aug. 21 Aug. 22 at the Antioch amphitheater.
