Hello friends out in the big wide world! In 2020, on lockdown, Pig Iron offered its first slate of virtual workshops via Zoom. We had no idea how this would go. We’ve spent the past two decades as fiercely analog artists devoted to breath and space. But we do thrive within limitations, so…we gave it a go.

We were thrilled by the response to our offerings. Great work was made, tears were shed, chills were felt–and several classes were sold out, with students Zooming in from London to Philly to Mexico City to Singapore. The feedback was overwhelming. 100% of students agreed, “I would recommend this class” and “I would study with this teacher again,” in our post-workshop survey. So it looks like this meets a need!

This spring, we’re bringing you another round of virtual workshops: REBOOT YOURSELF.
Each workshop is approximately 12-15 hours of class time. Class size is limited to 10-15 students. Our goals remain: to give you new vocabulary to make your own work, share our artistic obsessions with hungry theatremakers, and to create virtual ensembles of artists who want to reach new frontiers.

More information on the workshops and how to apply is below. Discounts are available for students who wish to participate in more than one workshop.
