GUEST INSTRUCTORS: Coxcomb Academy of the Performing Arts

Dr Henry Best and Capt Matthew Christopher, are pleased to be guests of Collegium Caidis. We will be providing a full track of general performing classes, for would-be entertainers in any discipline. Taken together, they are a full program for the SCA performer, which we call Stalking the Wild Audience. We explore questions and problems central to performing in the SCA, many very basic, some less so. We then examine, in depth, one specific tool which we have found to be useful, the model of the street performer or busker, based on experience gained busking both in the SCA and on modern streets in real world conditions. Whether you are a juggler, storyteller, musician, actor, dancer, magician, or any other kind of performer, at any level of experience, we hope you will come attend, ask questions, and that you will find value in our curriculum.

Building an Act In this class, we will explore how to take a basic idea for a performance and develop it into an entertaining act. Learn to separate the tasks of writer, performer, and director while creating a one man show. Learn to routine an act from start to finish, and then learn to polish that act to an elegant shine.
Henry Best
Sat 9 - 11
Don't Forget the Audience The same way that a conversation isn't just one person talking, a performance isn't just you doing your thing on stage. The audience is fully half of the transaction. Learn the rules of performance the pros use to insure that the audience is served and entertained.
Matthew Christopher
Sat 11 - 1
Performers' Emergency Kit Any experienced performer will tell you: Murphy was an optimist.

Learn how to be ready to deal with the inevitable disasters and turn them into triumphs.

Court as Theater A look at how to apply performing and theatrical techniques to SCA courts. Whether you are involved in court as royalty, herald, or being called up for a piece of business, this class will teach you how to make your time in court contribute to the audience's entertainment, not their boredom. Selene will have two guest panelists, professional entertainers from the Midrealm, to provide fresh perspective.
Selene Colfox, Henry Best, Matthew Christopher
Sat 4 - 6
Improv: When the King Calls Here's the scene: court is late and the king knows you are a performer of some kind or other, so without further adieu he presents you to the populace and says under his breath "fill 10 minutes"... This is the class that tells you what to do next! Taught by a former middle kingdom royal court jester and a full time Entertainer and Master of Ceremonies, this class will give you practical techniques for turning the entire court into a one-person show. Improv techniques like Off Calling, The Interview, Mishear, and Segue give you the time you need to catch your breath and win over the audience. Sure fire preparation for "When the King Calls".
Matthew Christopher
Sun 9 - 11
Anatomy of a Street Show In this class, we will perform a 20 minute act under quasi-street conditions, from gathering the audience to passing the hat.

Matthew Christopher and Henry Best
Sun 11 - 1
Takin'it to the Street The Coxcomb Academy curriculum draws toward a close with this master class taught by two people who have been to the street and lived to tell the tale. Matthew and Henry combine their talents to team-teach this lesson in applied street performing. They will teach you all the steps for getting your act together and making it pay in the toughest of all venues. This is a "must attend" for performers, in any discipline, looking to take their art to the next level.
