This 90 minute, virtual-acting/theatre workshop for 1-10 participants of any/all levels is fully customizable. It includes a 30-minute phone consultation in advance of the day so that Zeina can craft the experience around what you are looking for. Are you interested in something for children or youth? A fun family-centric experience? Corporate team building? STEM communication? Public speaking coaching? Audition prep? Monologue or scene study? Something else? As a seasoned acting instructor to folks of all ages and experience levels, Zeina will check in with you about what you are looking for and build the experience around your interests.
Here is what Zeina has to say about her experience with Pangea:
“I have been changed by my time with Pangea World Theatre, and always for the better. The organization's staff of artists/activists demonstrate such a firm commitment to social justice, not just in the themes of the work they produce but also in the deep integrity of the ways in which they produce it. It is humbling to witness, something to be celebrated, and a productive value system from which this field should continue to learn. The ensemble at Pangea has always made me feel supported, seen, included, and like whenever I am in the Twin Cities, I have a warm and loving home to which I can return”
