Characters in Motion: Where actors bring new writing life
Join us for a lively workshop as professional actors bring new writing to life
Brought to you by the team that gives you Stories at the Storey and North West Literary Salon, in collaboration with Emma Rucastle, supported by the Dukes, Off the Page Characters in Motion is a unique workshop opportunity for Creative Writers to see their writing performed in front of an audience and to have their drafts brought to life by professional actors directed by Emma Rucastle of ELART Productions/The Rose Company. The performances are followed by feedback and discussions of issues of process, interpretation, the reader and the development of craft.
What can you expect at a Characters in Motion workshop?
Professional writers act out characters in poems, plays, prose and essays, giving life to characters. This process allows writers to see their characters move, to hear them speak and to watch them interact on the stage as interpreted from the page. Prior to the performance, the pieces are read and discussed by a team of professionals: writers, actors and the director. On the evening of the performance, the writer and audience get the writing brought to life. Each performance is followed by discussion.
