DESCRIPTION: a writing and performance workshop series for adults of all ages (17 to 77+) to explore histories, language, identity, and our visions for ourselves within a changing world. We will draw from our collective and individual voices to discover old-new languages in our bodies and on our tongues. All levels welcome: No writing or performance experience necessary, but experienced writers/performers can also benefit. Consistent attendance to entire series is required to ensure continuity and the most productive environment possible.

The course will include: • theatre games and warm-ups • movement exercises to get into the body and generate material • referencing other art forms to inspire our writing (film, music, dance, visual art) • dialogues about arts and activism, storytelling, writing for the page and the stage • individual work with coaching and feedback • group work and at least one collaborative piece • revision techniques and practice • a culminating reading/performance
