Luxembourg European Annual Theatre Summer School
GETTING IN SHAPE TO THE ‘WRITE’ WAY FORWARD
This workshop will be concerned with the marriage of structure, (framework, style) with narrative drive. The HOW being as important as the WHAT. In my experience, many pieces of new writing for theatre have a lack of focus on structure and shape. The workshop would basically encompass how to use structure to allow your creative ideas to bloom. We would examine form, narrative development, drafting (taking criticism), and shaping. It would be suitable for those who have written creatively, and those who want to write creatively. It would be based solely on theatre, and no diverting into TV or film. Everyone would work individually on an original version of something – maybe an idea that has been floating around for a while or alternatively an entirely new idea springing from the energy and ideas discovered on this workshop.
