In this three-hour workshop, participants explore the narrative material of self and environment through place, memory and improvisation – using both fiction and documentary as storytelling material.

How to structure a found story? We will explore our seed stories through archetype, fairy tale and macro-dramaturgical analysis of time, character and place. Stories will be further developed through partner writing, acting exercises and improvisation in the group.
