About The Found Text: Writing for Devised Theatre (Full Price)
PART 1: WORKSHOP
Alison Oddey describes devised theatre as a process that "enables a group of performers to be physically and practically creative in the sharing and shaping of an original product".
What, then, is the role of the writer in this process? And what may be an analogue to the performers' physical process of intuition and spontaneity when creating ideas?
Using his ten years' experience as a writers with Tmesis Theatre, one of the UK's leading physical theatre companies, Chris suggests the 'found text' approach as an intuitive yet serendipitous generator of ideas.
We will use this methodology around the historic Liverpool waterfront and, in doing so, also consider the subsequent relationship that develops between writing, humankind and the natural environment around us.
