Industry Listing, Workshop / Classes.

TextBODYBODYText is a workshop lead by theatre maker Susanna Fournier.

It's for writers who construct texts for performance. (plays, lectures, performance poems)

What participants will come away with:
- expanded impulse based writing approaches
- 28 hours of supported in-studio time to light that fire under your ass and get you started on that new piece or advance that piece you’re stuck on
- 2, one hour dramaturgical sessions with Susanna (to be scheduled outside of workshop hours)
- 2 hour group session with director ted witzel on how he works with writers using post-dramatic dramaturgies
- a clearer understanding of how you work with content and form in your writing and how to manipulate this relationship
- a chance to immerse yourself in non-realist performance creation that will (so help me gods) never feature a couch on stage (unless it’s on fire as a throne for demons)

This workshop focuses on practical and philosophical approaches to writing:
- how language and story spring from the body & how impulse and body work can open the writing practice
- language as a physical act & dramatic action slung/sung/cast through time and space
- non-linguistic composition (writing as image, sound, gesture)
- relationships between language, form, and design
