A three-day writing workshop, looking at dramatic text through a movement perspective; inspired by the teachings at Ecole Jacques Lecoq.

Writing in Movement - Playwriting invites writers, playwrights, actors and directors into a room to explore the writing process through a movement perspective. The workshop focuses on how to develop dramatic texts; journeying participants through exercises that bring writing into movement. We will observe, play and write. Exploring: the concrete, dramaturgy, neutral mask, physical action, language and writing from the body. Inspired by the Lecoq tradition, Coleen MacPherson, Toronto-based 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.
