A workshop for professional practitioners with Will Weigler.
After collecting stories from nearly one hundred people about the single most unforgettable moment they had ever seen in a theatre performance, Canadian theatre director Will Weigler realized they all had one thing in common. He then developed a teachable vocabulary of theatrical staging strategies that anyone can learn to integrate into a performance.
In this 3-hour workshop, you will have a chance to work with Will’s deck of staging strategy vocabulary cards to learn how to apply them to your work as a theatre maker/facilitator.
There are limited spaces for this workshop on performance devising strategies that will radically elevate the capacity of community arts project participants, professional actors, playwrights, and directors to create vivid, evocative, and memorable theatre.
The workshop is based on Will’s book The Alchemy of Astonishment: Engaging the Power of Theatre (University of Victoria, 2016) which won the 2017 Distinguished Book Award for outstanding contribution to the field from the American Alliance for Theatre and Education in Washington, DC.
