On Its Feet Theatre Lab
Instructor: Playwright Calamity West
Time to experiment and have some fun! In this lab you will not only write a new short play but also produce it—securing both actors and a director—before a live audience. Afterwards enter an online forum where you’ll discuss how components forwarded the dramatic arc, where patterns and novelties appeared from page to stage, how the audience received the work, plus much more!
About the Tier 2 Advanced Track
Comprising the Writers Studio’s advanced sequence, students will develop complex characters through actions and consequences, use dramatic language to enhance the world of the play, differentiate between plot and story and how to apply them through the use of time, employ the use of image as a dramatic tool to enrich conflict, and devise dynamic worlds on stage that involve components beyond dialog such as sound, music, movement, media, dance plus other components. Tier 2 culminates in a public reading of a student’s work.
