One week long devising intensive with NHCC theatre program.

Week plan:

– Generate. Find the consensus thoughts that are happening between the group. Brainstorm and write a lot of content down to work with. Create short snippets of “theatrical images”. 

– Experiment. Work with the list of things we have created the first day and continue to throw improvised scene work down together. Watch and create scene work from the group in order to generate the skeleton of the performance. 

– Hone. We will begin to take things that stood out to us from the first two days of generation in order to start polishing and honing in on images that feel they fit some universal point of view. 

– Stitch. Take all the honed images and begin to string them together in a full bodied theatre presentation. 

*Tech / Perform. Tech the performance with sound/light and props in order to have a full piece.
