WHAT: Collaborate, conceive, write, compose, design and perform an original piece of theatre with music while working with professional artists and fellow students. The final product will be a workshop presentation of an original work of art.
MORE WHO: 10 students will join a professional staff and share their collective stories from all walks of life. In doing so, one, solid, unified piece of theatre is born. In order to make this happen, we need creative people of all types. This experience is about the creative process, with the focus on the 2 weeks of creation. There will be a presentation at the end of the workshop, but as stated, the focus will be on the writing, composing, creative process and the presentation will be about sharing the material, not the production value.
