About the instructor
Carl Antonowicz is an illustrator, writer, director, performer, and cartoonist. Most recently he finished the graphic novel TURMRING, a tale of woe and frustration set in a medieval village surrounded by toxic fog.
In 2019, Antonowicz staged an adaptation of former fellow Sophie Goldstein's short science fiction comics entitled THE FUTURE WITHOUT YOU. Antonowicz's staged work is a hybrid of radio show, stage play, and live comics reading. Actors bring voice and motion to still images projected on a screen while producing live Foley effects to enrich and compliment the action of the story. Audiences are forced to split their attention between drawn image, moving actors, and sounds from unexpected sources, all of which contribute to the creation of a gesamtkunstwerk that draws the viewer in to the narrative at the core of these performances.
Registration will close at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 11.
