CHARLENE A. DONAGHY: DEVISED THEATRE—aka SUDDEN SURPRISES, BLIND ALLEYS, IMPROVISATION—OH MY! (THEATER WORKSHOP)

As writers, we embrace our personal experiences, visions, voices, explorations, and experimentation to create works that live on the stage and/or the page. In Devised Theatre, also known as “collaborative creation” by some artists, we add the element of improvisation to begin that collaboration. Alison Oddey in Devising Theatre: A Practical and Theoretical Handbook describes it as a method of creating original performances by gathering a group of artists who bring their unique experiences to collaborate on the creation of a new product. This highly interactive seminar will take writers on a journey of discovery, as we look at the collaborative creation for modern Devised Theatre bringing in elements of commedia dell’arte, street theatre, and improvisation. You should wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to participate with ideas, art, movement, laughter, voices, and more.
