What are your character's most ambitious dreams and darkest impulses? What is your character's opinion on raw sushi? This workshop, taught by Chicago playwright Emma Stanton, welcomes all theater artists who seek to learn more about a character they are writing, portraying, or directing. Utilizing writing exercises of Charles Mee, Mac Wellman, and Maria Irene Fornes, participants will identify the voice of their character, how their character behaves in physical space, and the very particular lens through which their character sees the world.
Writers, Actors, Directors and Devisors will learn new tools to break out of personal habits, stereotypes, and blocks, to create more unique and unforgettable people on stage.
