Working Hard to be Silly

FB Event - September 24 - Absurdism.jpg

September 24, 2023

1:00 - 4:00 PM

Registration: This workshop is FREE. Seating is limited. Register here!

What is absurdism? Somebody blowing bubbles? Dipping your foot in a bucket? Smashing your face in a cake while somebody plays a violin? Yes, it's that, and it's a lot more.


Join self-defined nerds Luis Fernandez and Sean Parson from absurdist performance troupe, Enchilada Dada, for a workshop on dadaism and its roots.


This workshop will include: 

  • why dadaism exists and where it came from

  • how the absurd can be an antidote during hard times

  • what a dada-inspired performance can look like


Everyone is welcome!
