Inspiring Your Story” workshop uses the live performance “Fa(r)ther” as a jumping off point for students to begin writing their own narratives. Students will engage in theatre activities such as improvisation, role-playing, character building, sense memory and imagination exercises to generate setting and circumstance, characters, plot points and sensory language for their own written narratives. All writing will be done in individual student journals that can be kept as inspiration and material for future writing assignments.
Fa(r)ther is a powerful and moving solo performance that reveals the inner life and childhood memories of a young woman on the edge between self-destruction and self-actualization. Students will have viewed Fa(r)ther earlier in the day.
