Industry Listing, Workshop / Classes.

This intimate online workshop series will journey playwrights through a unique exploration of dramatic text through a movement perspective; inspired by the teachings at Ecole Jacques Lecoq. This workshop series is led by international theatre creator, Coleen Shirin MacPherson, and aims to provoke the imagination and stimulate your ability to play and transform image into words.

Playwriting in Movement focuses on how to develop dramatic texts; journeying participants through exercises that bring writing into movement. We will observe, play and write, while also developing our individual writing style and voice.

Exploring: the concrete, dramaturgy, neutral mask, physical action, language and writing from the body. Inspired by the Lecoq tradition, Coleen MacPherson, writer and theatre maker, will lead the workshop with the goal of inspiring writers, theatre makers and creative individuals to capture the world in words.

This 14-hour workshop series is divided into four parts and involves real-time Zoom conference calls, student-led conversation and guided movement exercises to stimulate the writing practice. It is recommended to do each workshop with enough space to move and to have a good internet connection.

Each workshop is 2 hours long with a short break, with the final two classes being 3 hours long in order to have enough time for sharing our work and getting feedback.

This workshop is recommended for both the veteran and the curious closet writer, and is a great way to dive into 2021 with a weekend ritual of writing.
