When making a thing, starting the thing is often the hardest thing to do. It’s the challenge of “getting-going” on our potentially excellent ideas that can tend to get in the way. Over this 5-day intensive, Elio will guide participating artists of all theatrical disciplines through several new-play/new-show/new-idea-generating exercises, providing a kick-start to whatever ideas you might have bouncing around in your head, and ones of which you weren’t even aware. Arrive ready to conceive, experiment and play, and leave with an exciting new something that wasn’t there before.
