Ever wondered how to start telling/writing your story? Incorporating improvisation techniques, but taking Euripides’ The Bacchae as a foundation to work from, we’ll look at as many different ways of staging and telling a story as we can fit into a day. What do we need to see, what do we not? How long is too long? What best suits the story I want to tell? If you have an interest in impro AND stuff that’s actually written down, or if you just have an idea but aren’t sure how to develop it, this may be a good place to start.
