Solo - the devised Monologue


Christine Schmalor
Online intensive-course: 26. September + 17. Oktober + 31. Oktober 2021
from 15-18:00 plus individual Coaching

The SOLO course consists of 3 joint meetings with 3 hours each and a one-hour personal coaching session the following week; dates by arrangement. Each meeting has a clearly outlined theme, so you can choose to attend all or just one. After each meeting you have the opportunity to deepen the topic and apply it to your own project in the personal coaching session with me.

SOLO 1 – Above All (26. September)
FINDING my theme – OPENING all dimensions of a theme – GIVING VOICE to my theme

SOLO 2 – The creative mind flow (17. Oktober)
Intertextuality – game and chaos – THINK BIG!

SOLO 3 – Composition (31. Oktober)
Building your fundament – your compass – your ARTISTIC LANGUAGE

This intensive workshop supports artists who are creating a monologue, monodrama, solo performance or their own devised theatre evening. Whatever you want to call it, you need a roadmap for your steps. Simple practical advice can be found everywhere. But then the journey into the unknown begins. How do I structure my own artistic path? What do I need to keep in mind? What tasks should I set myself so that I can really break new ground?

You might have already a vague subject or a collection of artistic material, but how to work with it? We will touch the following subjects:

- The artistic work with a theme and its practical implementation.
- Steps to unfold your creative mind-flow.
- The process of creation through intertextuality: discovering new patterns of speech and thought that, in particular, inspire playfulness.
- The art of composition as the basis and compass of designing a monoperformance.

This intensive course is aimed at theatre artists who are planning their own project or are already in the process and could use support.
After the first course in June 2021, which was enthusiastically received but proved far too short, I have decided to expand the programme and offer three meetings instead of one, each with more practical exercises to try out immediately together.
