Creative Writing for Performance

> Location: Pink Room
> Skill Level: All abilities
> 12 Week Course starting Friday 26th of April 2019 and ending Friday 26th July 2019

This course is designed to give you an opportunity to develop your creative writing skills with a particular focus on writing for performance. We will start with classical approaches to writing before moving on to practices such as writing for communities, experimental and solo performance. You will be invited to read and write pieces of work in a range of styles and genres and encouraged to reflect and think critically about your work in a supportive environment. There will be also chances to practice performing your work, either individually or with others.

Perhaps you are a poet looking to push yourself into trying something new with your work, or a budding script writer looking for a place to hone your craft? During the course you will develop your writing skills and confidence, drawing inspiration from your own life and the world around you as well as the work of established writers. You will explore important skills such as how to set a scene, developing a character and writing dialogue as well as creating a mood and stage imagery.

“I can take any empty space and call it a bare stage. A man walks across an empty space whilst someone else is watching him, and this is all that is needed for an act of theatre to be engaged.” – Peter Brook
