This six-week workshop focuses on storytelling and embodiment, combining elements of theatre practice with the development of writing skills.
Embodied narrative goes beyond mere words by highlighting the connection between lived experience, language, and self-expression. Participants will study the components of a monologue, engage in movement and voice exercises, and develop their own narrative (monologue) based on life experience. The goals of this workshop are: 1) to give participants the skills to better articulate their own experiences, 2) to offer a range of practices that foster embodiment and body awareness, and 3) to provide the opportunity to practise creating, editing, and presenting within a supportive communal setting.
Reading and viewing materials will be provided in class. Participants will be given some time to write/create during the sessions but should expect to do some writing and editing homework.
Please note that this course has a maximum enrollment of 12 students and that TMI does not allow participants to audit courses for free.
