CJ NORRIS

  • Instagram

CJ (he/him) is a multi-passionate performing artist and creator with a varied background in improv, theatre, music, comedy, and drag. He loves combining these artforms to create unique theatrical experiences like his highly acclaimed ‘dragsicals’. CJ is known for his physicality on stage, bringing to life characters like LeFou in Beauty and the Beast, and Scuttle in The Little Mermaid (both with the Capitol Theatre). When not on stage, CJ loves teaching theatre classes and directing budding performers. He is all about bridging the gaps between art forms, and expanding the possibilities of live entertainment.

Mime is the ancient artform that allows us to convey ideas through our bodies and facial expressions, which is just as relevant and powerful today as it was during its inception. Pantomime takes this medium one step further, creating a more complex narrative. Through pantomime we can create fully fleshed out characters, and tell a full story from beginning to end with just our bodies and some instrumental music. CJ will walk you through the elements of physical storytelling, and you will work with your fellow participants to conceive and create a short group performance to be presented for the class.
