Cabaret Comedy and Broadway Jazz Workshop – presented by Miss Friby
Thu September 26 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm$30 – $40
Presented by Elizabeth Dawson, aka Miss Friby.
Character/narrative based choreography & performance – fun, informative, high energy exploration in the classic dance genres of broadway, musical theatre and vaudeville (Fosse, Porter, Miller). Together we will work on a unique dance piece which is equal part story, character & choreography all the while exploring techniques and lines that can be implemented into your work, to give it that added finesse.
Performer, producer and show maker, Elizabeth’s knack for devising work for an impressive array of circus, cabaret & theatre artists has made it’s mark on the vaudeville, cabaret and burlesque circuit, with two Green Room Award nominations (2012/15), a Fields Award nomination for her ‘Contribution to Australian Vaudeville’ (2015) and act direction for the winning entries of Miss Burlesque Australia 2014 (Zelia Rose) and Mr Boylesque Australia 2015 (Egson Ham). As principle performer/producer for Miss Friby, Elizabeth has enjoyed a colourful career, delighting audiences both as an MC/Host and performer at festivals such as Splendour in the Grass, Woodford Folk Festival and Falls Festival. Her work is considered innovative, thought provoking and of the highest quality, and her multifarious background in physical theatre, dance and music ensures that her insight as an act maker and workshop facilitator is broad and articulate.
