Group Playmaking aka Devised Theatre

Request Program

Did you know you can make a wildly original play without starting with a script? Commonly called “devised theatre,” this theatre form is a way of collectively authoring a new play using the input and contributions of all participants. These contributions can be in the form of written text, myths, physical choreography, research, props, music, and much more. We will explore a subset of these methods and also have an introduction to physical theatre which is often used to generate material for original plays.
