Depth of Surfaces: Generative Writing/Directing

Thursday, October 6
Room C-198

Half Straddle Artistic Director Tina Satter leads writing, performance, and directorial exercises and techniques that will be used to generate new performance writing and scene approaches—and can infuse projects already in process. A collaborative and open environment allows participants to find unexpected ways to generate content—and be in conversation with Tina on her work with Half
Straddle and individual practice.

Please note that this workshop requires sign-up in advance.

To take part in this workshop, please email ninasegal@gmail.com by Monday 3rd October.  Space is limited and all participants are required to confirm in advance.
