Tuesday morning @ Wits University
On Tuesday, for the second day in a row, visited Wits and worked with their acting students. I facilitated a hour long workshop in verbstim theatre, then spoke to them about the MA Programme at St. Mary's University.
The verbatim theatre workshop gets them to quickly creat short pieces of theatre based on their fellow students stories. I have them pay special attention not only to the story but also to the body language and verbal ticks that each of us have. Then then take the heard stories and create a short 30 second monologue based on that story.
