Use devised theatre practices during actual mock-creation process
- Date: June 22 & June 23, 2017.
- Time: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
- Location: TBA
This two-day intensive workshop is designed for teachers, performing artists and other group leaders who are interested in creating bold new theatrical work with the people they teach, lead or facilitate. Got a class of 15 girls and two boys? No problem. Want to make work that reflects the lives and experiences of your group in all their diversities? Yup. Can’t find a script that meets all your needs? Create one instead!
This is a highly hands-on workshop. Using devised theatre practices developed over a 20-year career, David leads participants through an actual mock-creation process. You will leave with concrete techniques and principles that can be directly used in the classroom, program room or rehearsal hall.
Due to the intensive nature of this workshop, admission is by application consisting of an email outlining your background and reasons for your interest in the workshop. Space is limited. Applications can be sent to [email protected].
