Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

Writing for Performance with Steve Attridge

Sun 29 - Sun 5 Sep 2021

Most Writing can lead to performance – poetry, prose, drama and film/TV scripts. Here you will learn techniques that will open up new ways of thinking about life experiences and communicating them.

The belief is that all words have a life of their own and we can tap into that life in order to discover more about ourselves and the world around us. Brainstorming ideas, visualising exercises. Full of tips and techniques and ways of thinking about language and life.

Whether you want to be a performance poet, create a one person show or be a storyteller or write a good drama, this course will help. Most important of all, it is great fun.

What people say about Steve and his course:

Really enjoyed this wonderful course. Learned a great deal.

I found this compressed course extremely useful. Practical and good theory base well combined. Lots of sensible and helpful/useful tips. Like the mix of humour and literary references. Steve is an excellent teacher.

Six hours [at The Grange] is a deceptive offering - whole worlds and possibilities can open up - as they have for me this weekend. From on the spot excercises, discussion and reams of instruction, I will return to my desk inspired and emboldened. Steve paces us through terrains of character, structure, dialogue and theme - a whole toolkit from which to move forwards...

Awesome - engaging, thought-provoking - loved it! Thank you so much...
