What is a character? Where do they come from? What do they do? Video artist Julian Rosenfeldt and actress Cate Blanchett together created thirteen distinct and different characters for their installation Manifesto. Join Armory Teaching Artists and make a complete character of yourself as we experiment with words, movement, and voice to turn ourselves into someone else entirely.
Please note: participants in this workshop will not see the film in its entirety.
