Intro To Devised Theater Part 2
Time & Location
About The Event
Devised theater offers an ensemble the opportunity to make unique and relevant theater in a short period of time. While techniques vary widely, this class will put a few approaches under the microscope as well as begin the process of building our own piece of devised theater.
Part 1 will focus on the history and relevance of Devised Theater as a vehicle for playmaking.
Part 2 will have us putting those techniques into practice as we create our own short pieces of Devised Theater.
