Writing for Performance
This course is perfect for writers at the beginning of a new play looking for innovative, imaginative and thought-provoking ways to develop your writing for live performance. Through a combination of workshop exercises, one-to-one meetings and sharing of work in progress, you’ll explore a multitude of approaches on how to bring your work alive on the stage.
How can you follow a plan or idea for your play, but allow yourself to take risks and enjoy the freedom of spontaneity and exploration? Taking you through the nuts and bolts of applying dramatic and theatrical thinking at the earliest stage of your ideas, tutors Kaite O’Reilly and David Lane will bring their wealth of experience across a range of live performance media to the course. You’ll leave the course buzzing with ideas and with a clear roadmap for continuing your writing to completion of a first draft.
