Join Flagstaff Arts Council for a 6 week Long- Form Improv Workshop with Garrison Garcia in 2020!  Garrison’s passion for performing started at childhood with a living room magic show and might have peaked with his role of “Toy Soldier #3” in a community production of The Velveteen Rabbit. As a graduate student, he performed with NAU’s improv troupe, NAUghty Bits. Currently, Garrison can be found writing sketches, scripts, and cultivating local talent for The Foundry, Flagstaff’s only monthly, community variety show.  Garrison is the founding member and creative director of Flagstaff’s premier improv comedy team, Tiny Punches. By “yes, and”-ing the offers life gives him, Garrison has discovered a passion for directing improv workshops and trainings and he firmly believes that anyone can do improv.

This workshop is designed to provide the participant with a thorough overview and foundational knowledge of longform improvisation concepts. Essential for beginners and experienced players alike, learners can expect a highly participatory and interactive experience, culminating in a student show. Concepts covered include creating a base reality, finding and playing game, character and scene work, and using openings to initiate scenes. No prior experience is necessary for enrollment in this workshop, only a willingness to try new things in a supportive and encouraging environment. After completing this workshop, individuals from varied backgrounds have commented about their improved ability to think on their feet, the greater sense of confidence they have in group interactions and public speaking, and the extremely positive experience of laughing for two hours straight each week.

Latin GRAMMY Winners Flor de Toloache make New York City history as its’ First and Only All­-Women Mariachi Group. Founded in 2008, Flor de Toloache is lead by singers Mireya I. Ramos (founder) & Shae Fiol (founding member). Reminiscent of the early days of mariachi the group started as a trio, Harp, Violin and Vihuela. Today, Flor De Toloache’s members hail from diverse cultural backgrounds such as Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Italy and the United States. This defines their unique flavor and sound. The result of this cultural bouquet is an edgy, versatile and fresh take on traditional Mexican music.

Over the course of the last few years, Flor de Toloache’s performances have illuminated world renowned stages in Europe and India. In November 2015, the group embarked on an extensive European and U.S tour as the opening act of Black Keys’ singer Dan Auerbach’s new band, The Arcs. After performances to sold out audiences in the UK, Germany, Holland, Italy, France, they continued to captivate crowds in the U.S. at legendary venues such as First Avenue in Minneapolis, The Vic in Chicago, Terminal 5 in New York, DC 930 Club and Nashville’s Ryman Theater (The Grand Ole Opry).

Flor De Toloache’s critically acclaimed self-titled debut album received a Latin Grammy nomination for “Best Ranchero/Mariachi Album” in 2015.  The group’s live performances were praised by Rolling Stone, Billboard Magazine, The New Yorker, GQ Magazine, The New York Times. Following a highly praised NPR’s “Tiny Desk Concert”,  their collaboration with rock supergroup The Arcs landed them on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and BBC 2’s Later with Jools Holland.

Flor de Toloache is currently working on a new record for label oneRPM, the first single for which is released on February 14th, Valentine’s Day, 2019. The band’s new album, scheduled for release in May 2019.
