WORKSHOPS AND EVENTS
PLAYING FOR TIMEQuick thinking for writers of performanceThis gun-shot early evening workshop aims to introduce participants to new ideas, skills and methods for creating performance. It is especially aimed at writers and performers who wish to expand their skills creating performance through impulse. As artists, if we are given too much time with a great idea, we will usually find a way to talk ourselves out of it. This workshop is designed to galvanise participants to:
? write faster than edit
? ?do? faster than think
? create faster than critique
Participants will write, perform and devise a ?score?, drawing from
their own life experiences and fantasies.
