2018 Event Details
Annie G. Levy (+ Local Core Facilitator)
This workshop is a practical, on-your-feet introduction to collaborative and devised theatre making. Devising theatre is the process of creating theatre in a collaborative manner. Though particular roles may be assigned – writer/s, director/s, actor/s, designer/s – the creation of the piece, whether wholly original or adapted, happens with the artists working together in the rehearsal room, informing each others’ processes. Students will be introduced to a variety of processes in ensemble-theatre-making including adaptation, found text, Viewpoints and Composition, improvisation, working with counterpoint and creating solo performance, as well as methods of offering critical feedback on works-in-progress. The workshop will culminate in mini-presentations of new work exploring mythology and ritual of the participants' choosing.
Venue: Urban Abbey
