DRAMATIC WRITING INTENSIVE
This course focuses on the creative use of the English language. Over the course of the term, students use various genres of dramatic writing (for stage, TV and film) to explore the power, richness, and expressivity of language.
Through various theatre-based exercises, dramatic writing students examine and experiment with everyday spoken language to create new narratives. Writing students also participate in acting workshops to expose them to diverse modes of expression and to help them gain insight into the mechanics of theatrical communication. The course culminates in the writing of monologues, which will be presented by emerging performance artists at the end of the session.
