Devised theatre is a process that requires the ultimate collaborative nature of a creative team.  Essentially, one group of people are creating a completely original show based on their reactions and interpretations of a shared piece of source material. This time in quarantine has the potential to be artistically impactful for the lives of our teenagers. See also Part One of this course – they can be taken as standalone courses, but it’s fun to have the entire experience!

PART TWO: Second half of Fall

  1. Part Two involves careful planning of the show to be produced – writing, design, etc… 
  2. The company will closely look at all of the compositions and conversations from Part One and develop thoughts on the central themes and ideas that emerged across the students’ work. 
  3. As a team, but students taking the lead, we begin to develop the framework of the story we need to tell. Using compositions and journal entries, characters will be developed and a script will be fleshed out. 
  4. Once we can get in the space, we start playing with tech elements and how to transform the BAAY space into something completely original. 
  5. Then, we do the show (at some point)!

Tuition: $180

Staff: Olivia Theilemann, Instructor

Dates:  Runs six weeks, Nov 3 -Dec 10. 2x/week, Tue and Thur, 6:00-7:00pm.

Format: Course will begin via Zoom and move to in-person if and as public health guidelines allow during the second half.

Our intention is to provide in-person instruction for every course if and when public health restrictions allow. For the most part, we expect this will mean Fall 2020 runs mainly via Zoom; we hope public health conditions improve so we can meet in-person. For families who prefer and request to have attendance via Zoom after in-person meetings begin again, we will strive to continue offering that attendance option, to increase accessibility.
