Sometimes a piece of writing demands a different approach to the well known technique of a typewriter and a desk, be it for a single scene to capture a sense of realism, or for an entire play that requires frequent collaboration to help it come to life.
Led by our intern Selwin Hulme-Teague, this FREE workshop will look at some of the ways that performance and improvisation can be used to generate character, setting and text.
You do not have to be a skilled actor or improviser to come to this workshop, just be ready to try out both a bit of performing and a bit of writing!
Length: 2 hours
Bring: Notebook and pen
