"Starting with the premise that the first impulse is the magic one, I will introduce you to my method of "instant performance," locating your innate capacity to give life to something that is fully formed from the moment you transmit it. We will then crystallize that initial impulse to point the way toward making work of lasting value.

In order for the originator of solo work to successfully captivate and hold an audience, rigorous demands must be met but also unique opportunities for invention are offered. This intensive workshop explores how these solo performance methods - of conjuring character, inventing natural speech and locating the stories inspired by places - can be applied to generating writing of every kind and to infusing performance with live-wire authenticity.

For playwrights, solo show originators, actors, and writers of all stripes, this is writing on the tongue and stage, as an alternate to, and rejuvenation of, writing on the page."
