La dramaturgia Cuántica (Quantum Playwriting)

Instructor: Antonio César Morón

Dates: May 24, 2021 - June 28, 2021 (Monday 3–5pm)

Tuition: $100 (5 weeks)

Language: Spanish

Target Users: Playwrights with basic playwriting knowledge

Description

Quantum playwriting facilitates dramatic writing, allowing the playwright a much broader perspective for the creation of characters and story. This broadening of perspective endows the writer with confidence in his/her own abilities to produce dramatic texts by decimating the obstacles that exist within classic playwriting. These obstacles–continuity, stage directions and character construction–often thwart the creative impulse as playwrights find it impossible to establish a logical sense and image of the play’s action and the story being executed. Throughout the workshop, we will work individually and as a group with each of the participants, making use of his/her playwriting skill and taking it to levels unknown to the playwrights themselves.
