Join us on Saturday, September 23, 2017, for a free, interactive writing workshop on crafting a theatrical structure while working with community. The workshop will be led by Tucson playwright and theatre artist Milta Ortiz.
Theatricalizing Oral Histories in Community : Writing Workshop with Milta Ortiz (Playwright, Más)
Saturday, September 23, 2017
10:00 am – 12:00 pm
1738 E. McDowell Rd.
Phoenix, AZ 85006
Using Milta Ortiz’s docudrama play Más as a case study, learn about techniques in crafting a theatrical structure while working with community. The structure of the play evolves out of the community’s stories and the process of development asks for the community’s feedback. A key factor is to know when to step up and when to step down. This is an interactive workshop with hands-on exercises.
This workshop is presented in collaboration with CALA Alliance, Palabras Bookstore, ASU Performance in the Borderlands, and Cultural Coalition.
