Join us on Wellness Days for “Make Me Laugh!,” a series of workshops guided by USC School of Dramatic Arts professor, head of comedy, and supervisor of the medical clowning program Zach Steel. Through improv-based exercises, spontaneous game play, and other activities, he will use laughter and clowning to improve our emotional and physical wellness in a historic moment of separation and stress, and attempt the impossible: To actually have fun on Zoom.
Come to one or come to all! Professor Steel will be switching it up each time.
Space is limited. USC students, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend and be present without any pressure to participate.
Zach Steel is an assistant professor of theatre practice and head of comedy at the USC School of Dramatic Arts, and serves as supervisor for SDA’s program in medical clowning—the practice of bringing highly skilled performers into hospitals. The member of the theatre troupe Four Clowns, teacher at The Clown School, and creator of the award-winning show, Me Rich You Learn, has appeared on television shows for NBC, Comedy Central, and Fox.
Presented by Arts in Action, part of USC Visions and Voices: The Arts and Humanities Initiative. Organized by Zach Steel (Dramatic Arts).
