Actors Gym to stream
Actors Gym has announced Isolated, its annual spring youth circus that, this year, has been devised through an innovative online rehearsal process.
It features 28 of its top youth performers working under the direction of Kasey Foster and Sylvia Hernandez-DiStasi. The show will be screened online on May 16 and 23 at 7:30 p.m.
According to a press release, Isolated invites audiences to step into the company members' bedrooms and learn what being a teenager amidst a global pandemic is like. The show searches for joy in the simplest of things in an effort to cope with the tremendous challenges of this moment.
For the past six weeks, the directors and cast have been rehearsing regularly via Zoom, getting creative, and using their acting, musical, and circus skills and everyday objects to create this theatrical endeavor. Anyone interested in receiving notification reminders for the event can sign up on the Gym's Facebook page: www.facebook.com/ActorsGymCircus/.
Also, Actors Gym launched its lineup of May classes, providing online instruction in subjects ranging from Juggling to Aerial Conditioning and more. For more than a month now, the Gym has been offering its programming online to hundreds of students of all ages across the country.
Classes meet over Zoom and are $15 per drop-in, or $50 for four weeks. Registration is available at ActorsGymnasium.org, and financial aid is available.
