Legs And All

Company: Summer Shapiro

A man in an attic meets a woman in a box. As they lure one another into their worlds, their curiosity unfolds to expose a hilarious, mind-bending, innovative allegory for the classic man-meets-woman story.
Rooted in physical comedy and drenched in imaginative stage illusion, LEGS & ALL is an inventive exploration of human loneliness set to an evocative tango-meets-bluegrass score. San Francisco's beloved physical comedienne, Summer Shapiro, teams up with equally talented clown Peter Musante (Blue Man Group - NY), for 50 minutes of kinetic comedy and subtle pathos. After winning top honors at the 2010 FRIGID Festival in NY, and an award-winning, sold-out run at the 2009 San Francisco Fringe Festival, Legs and All returns to New York. It balances childlike whimsy and sophisticated wit for a “masterful” performance all audiences and ages will enjoy.

Collaborators Summer Shapiro and Peter Musante facilitate a three-hour investigation into the creation of physical theater. Structured around their devising methods for creating LEGS AND ALL, the workshop will help participants identify a creative spark and propose techniques to help extract its theatrical possibilities. Participants will leave the workshop inspired and empowered to create their own work.
