Devising Within A Democracy

Monday, June 25
10am to 2pm

ART/New York South Oxford Space Great Room

138 South Oxford Street, Fort Greene (map)

The TEAM creates all of our work collaboratively through a variety of strategies including physical and verbal improvisation, solo and group writing assignments, character and movement compositions. In a final production it is nearly impossible to trace any one line of dialogue or image back to a single author’s hand.

Our Devising Within a Democracy workshop immerses participants in a mini-devising process, providing tools and strategies for solo and group creation, working through delicate issues of collaboration and authorship, and bridging into the editing and synthesizing process.

Topics covered:
  • Moving from intellectual or thematic ideas to dynamic theatrical moments
  • Generating material through physical and written assignments
  • Cultivating an ensemble bond and navigating emotional waters amidst a process
  • Strategies for editing as a group
  • Building Dances
  • Writing on your feet (and other approaches to improvisation)

This workshop is open to artists at all levels of experience, ages 18+.
