“I don’t think writers are sacred, but words are. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones in the right order, you can nudge the world a little or make a poem which children will speak for you when you’re dead.” – Tom Stoppard
McTavish Academy of Art (MAOA), in association with Half a World Theatre, offers those aged 15 to 25 and beyond another exciting opportunity to make drama and to experience theatre.
No prior knowledge is required for this term’s 9 week theatre workshop, which offers participants the opportunity to discover how a play script is developed into a live theatrical performance.
A range of techniques from physical and devised theatre backgrounds will be utilised to enable potential performers to map plays, to examine characters through their journeys, to workshop scenes through exploration of the text and to start learning how to shape a production. Extracts from contrasting play scripts will be examined with each segment of the course culminating in a rehearsed reading of one of the pieces.
“An actor without a playwright is like a hole without a doughnut.” –George Jean Nathan
