In this workshop you will be introduced to composition techniques arising out of Anne Bogartʼs work. We will use these techniques to write on our feet, with others, in time and space, using the language of the theatre. Participants will explore time and space, the essential elements of the theatre, and be given an assignment that will result in a short piece that is repeatable, communicative, and theatrical. Please dress to move in neutral clothes (black is best) and bring water, a pen and notebook. If you have a prop or costume item that is compelling to you, bring that as well.
