Performance Workshop


How do we use theatre to tell the stories that matter? These workshops are for anyone - theatre practitioners, educators, community organizers, and novice storytellers - who want to create a performance out of oral history and other non-dramatic texts. Through a series of exercises and prompts combining words and movement, participants will explore and experiment with the art of crafting non-fiction narratives for the stage. These workshops provide an interactive introduction to the practice and the ethics of making theatre that draws from the lived experiences of others. No experience required.
