Facilitated by Kathryn Goldie – Writer/ Filmmaker (Artist in Residence)
This Workshop is Now Closed
DATE: Sat 6 July, 2013
TIME: 1:00PM – 3:30PM
Want to write for performance but not sure how to start? Come to Colour Box Studio and we’ll go through a process to create an interesting character and take them on a journey that an audience will want to follow! What makes a compelling character? What makes a good story? Why doesn’t my anecdote work as a play? How do I write dialogue? What’s the difference between writing for film or theatre? We’ll start from scratch and by the end of the workshop, you’ll have a piece of writing that we can read aloud—the first step to performance! We’ll also talk about the next steps: redrafting and editing, and how you can get your writing performed in front of an audience. Two to two-and-a-half hours. Bring pen, paper and your imagination, and be prepared to experiment!
