Writing from the Physical

LED BY: Marjorie Chan
DATES: JULY 24 & 25

An active exploration of the act of writing for live performance. This course is designed expressly for writers/makers of theatre, music theatre, opera etc. who suspect that it may be useful to disrupt the notion that creating works for live performance can only happen by sitting at a computer. Marjorie Chan’s groundbreaking course in active writing instead draws inspiration from being in a space, moving, improvising, drawing, using observation etc. It promotes and explores an intuitive approach to the page that uses the body and space to inspire the act of writing. A course designed for any level of experience as a writer - from first-timers to veterans looking for a new way in.
