18. Writing for Performance
November 1 – 6
Residential: £525 (single); £450 (shared)
This is a dynamic and diverse residency for writers of performance keen to explore different source materials, processes, and dramatic structures, whilst seeding new work. The course will be intensive and stimulating, allowing participants to engage with a series of respected and ground-breaking practitioners, working in new ways.
The week will be a series of themed workshops with course tutor Kaite O’Reilly, plus two special full day workshops: PERFORMING PLACES led by Mike Pearson, and PATTERNS IN PLAYS, led by Sarah Woods (see below).
Daily workshops will include practical exercises exploring site, the senses, existing stories and memory as inspiration and source material. Alongside the practical, skills-based sessions and generation of new short work, will be the opportunity for participants to reflect on process and structure. At the end of the week writers will leave with tools and approaches that can be used long after the course has finished.
Evening sessions will include informal discussion, video screenings, and the opportunity to share work in progress in a relaxed environment.
In partnership with the Drama Association of Wales. This course is open to all but DAW is offering one full bursary and places at a 10% discount to its members. Applicants should contact Teresa Hennessy on 029 2045 2200 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org for details. Closing date for DAW bursary applications is July 30th.
