#SWIMP17: Participating More in Performance (workshop)

Citystay / Uppsala

lör 25 mar 2017 kl 14.00 – AVSLUTAD

Participating More in Performance

Difficult scenes often result when the onstage players have no idea where or who they are because they are surrounded by a blank space that offers them nothing. Participation by other players fills this space creating a real world for the players to play in. This makes scenework easy because the heavy lifting of invention is done for the players; they can focus on each other, rather than inventing details. It also makes further invention by the players easier because they have a real world to build on (snowball effect), instead of a blank space.

This is a workshop with exercises to encourage players to participate in the performance without being new main characters. It trains players to support their fellow players by providing them with a real world to play in. This makes the job for onstage characters easy.
