TUTA Workshop: Unlocking the Character


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. 


TUTA is partially supported by Arts Work Fund for Organizational Development, The Light A City Fund, The Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation, The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, City Arts I and the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, The Illinois Arts Council, a state agency, The Saints, and Promet Source.
