Develop your stories for performance live via Skype from Los Angeles (culminates in a live performance).
We all have stories. What makes a compelling story? What makes powerful storytelling? Making the leap from the page to the stage requires discovering your unique voice, not only in content but in finding the style of the piece.
If you'd love to produce your own work (for film, web or stage), are looking to create performance opportunities or simply wish to develop as an artist, then this is the course for you. Created by Karen Ludwig this amazing program will challenge and inspire you. During each week of the course you will be guided using improvisations and writing exercises which will lead you toward your goal - a compelling event for stage or screen.
The six-session program concludes with a live event at which participants present 15 minutes of their work. The event is filmed and participants are able to secure their own footage.
Storytelling and solo-performance has exploded in popularity in New York, London and Los Angeles. Many theatres host regular solo performance events, actors increasingly showcase themselves in their own solo productions, and with the extraordinary popularity of 'The Moth' podcast and storytelling events, the phenomenon is set to go global.
