COMPOSITION & DEVISING
COMPOSITION + DEVISING WORKSHOP
Saturday, AUgust 3 3-5PM
Playwright, performer of one woman play, MAGDALEN will be leading a workshop introducing and integrating the building blocks of a technique called, Composition which is used to generate new work for the stage.
Actors, non-actors, writers and non-artists are encouraged to attend! The focus will be on developing something brand new - a burning idea, story - personal or fictional, or a small concept that can be used for something worth exploring later.
We will then explore the three major tenants of the Composition work: Asking the questionDeveloping the anchor (event/person/place or thing that serves as the vehicle for answering the question) Creating the structure
Please bring your objects (photos, drawing, piece of writing) and/or your ideas so that we can do some fun exploration together!
