Are you ready to develop the story of your solo show? This three-day intensive workshop will give you the tools you need.
You will find a voice to speak your emotional, political and personal truth.
You will learn to create a structure that will carry your story further into the world with power and clarity.
The work we do over the course of one evening and two days is primarily about how to structure your story. We will review the basic elements of story, and then discuss how they fit together.
As you present your story to the group, we will puzzle out the underlying conflict, illuminate the characters, uncover your deeply held beliefs and create a vivid map of your story.
By the end of the three days, you will be familiar with the landscape of your story and have a clear idea of where to dig for treasure and a plan to continue.
