In this workshop we’ll explore experimental theatre practices used in making performance work from scratch, which is called devising. In small groups you’ll develop performance material from a single point of inspiration, tracking how you, as artists, can go from a source like a painting to a piece of original performance material. In the process you’ll come away with techniques for making your own work.
Some acting experience required (such as acting and/or improv classes and performance).
The most important thing to have is to have a willingness to try new things with a spirit of generosity and a curiosity for exploring unknowns.
Wear comfortable clothes you can move in, notebook and pencil, and a water bottle
No refund for cancellations and no discounts apply to this workshop.
