"From Accident to Inspiration"; A WORKSHOP IN DEVISING SKILLS

  • Old Vic New Voices Workrooms 16 Drummond Road London, SE16 4BX United Kingdom (map)

Hosted by The Mono Box, this is a one day improvisatory and devising workshop designed to incite accidents, release inspiration and develop imaginative, unconventional and authentic theatre.

HOW WILL IT WORK?

The workshop will be divided into 3 keys stages, mirroring the devising process that Amy has steadily developed over the last decade.

Stage 1. Accident: Improvisation games and techniques to generate material.

Stage 2. Inspiration: Brainstorming from material and further improvisation to develop it.

Stage 3. Imagination: Devising and creative writing exercises; testing material in different shapes and sizes. 

(N.B. These "stages" are constantly interchangeable and feed one another - imagination can lead to accident toinspiration, etc.) 

WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT?

Sharpened improvisation skills and greater confidence in transforming accidental, madcap ideas into inspirational material for theatre. You may even leave with a new show in tow!
