Thursday, 30. May 2019, The Institute for Art and Olfaction - Chinatown, The Sinful Smells of Doctor Faustus: Scent + Theater with Daniel Krasofski

The sin of global economic domination, heated musky lust, and possible redemption....
Join Daniel Krasofski to explore the tragicomic and sinful smells of Doctor Faustus and learn about using scent as an actor's character development tool.
Drawing from Daniel’s research and work as a scent artist, we will smell his aromatic interpretations of The Archway Theatre Company's rendition of Christopher Marlowe’s Elizabethan play, The Tragicial History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus. This session will shed light on actors using scent as a memory stimulant, emotional trigger, and grounding techniques.
We will explore a famous tale of pride, sin, and damnation; the application of scent behind the curtains in theater, and how to interpret and use fragrance to set intentions and get into character.
This 2 hour session will take the form of a smelling game, exploration of the seven deadly sins (literal **** circa 1400 CE), and creating perfume briefs based on abstract concepts. A short Q&A session will follow.

When we host a class or workshop, we often order the materials to be used in the class well in advance, based on how many people have signed up (and padding a bit for safety). We also use class proceeds to pay our teachers. Although we realize that life has a funny way of getting in the way of the best laid plans, as a small non-profit we cannot afford to carry the burden of lost proceeds and materials.
With that in mind, here is our refund policy:
– Cancellation with refund or credit requests made 2 weeks or more (14 days) before the scheduled class will be honored with gusto! We’ll miss you, but will 100% refund your spot, or give you credit for another class.– Refunds or class credits requested less than 14 days before the scheduled class: We will refund you 50% of your class fee. Why? Because we’ve already ordered the materials.– Refunds or class credits requested less than 48 hours before the class, on the day of the class or after the class has happened will not be granted.
Note also that event tickets are non-transferable.

Thank you for understanding!
