From an Itch to a Scratch to a Performance
Tue 05 Oct 2021
10am - 1pm (break at 11.30am)
In the workshop we will explore methods of devising and look at ways to structure a theatrical piece. We will hone our performance skills, carry out writing exercises to turn into performance, and explore the value of research in creating theatre. We will explore the role of the dramaturge in the devising process, carry out theatrical exercises that fire our imagination and look at how to make our performance unique, personal, and dangerous.
