About this Event

Workshop Description:

Plays. Performances. Scripts. Theatrical texts. What are they and how do you create them? If you're a writer or a maker looking to explore creating texts for performance (or get some new inspiration for your practice) this introductory workshop is a great way to dive into the basics of narrative and performance based writing. We'll look at classic forms: narrative, character, action, structure, as well as *get weird* by dipping into contemporary forms of theatre and performance. We'll spend time perusing the world of dramatic writing and some focused time hearing about where you're at, and what you're craving from your own writing practice. No experience in dramatic writing is necessary, and all experiences welcome. 



This workshop is open to 2SLGBTQ+ identified artists and individuals of any age.
