Solo - the devised Monologue

Description: 

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.

Sharing Secrets - The Art of Composition

Share

Type:

Description: 

Jurij Alschitz

With the Sharing Secrets series of the Online Theatre Academy, theatre practitioners have the unique opportunity to learn from the life-long international experience of a Master in theatre.

The Art of Composition is the art of construction - of the role, the performance, or a play. It is the art of the director to link scenes, word images, emotions, themes, light, sound, etc. and to connect them in the most diverse ways. It is the art of combination, of leading and subordinating, of harmony and chaos. Montage shows itself to be an important part of the art of directing. Where should one start? What is important, what is not? On the basis of which definition of composition do I ask my questions? Are you aware of the difference between composition and the structure of a performance?

Composition is a sort of artistic language - this language is understood without words. The art of composition is particularly important for the modern language of the stage, because it shows the clarity of directing as if under a burning glass. It is compass that gives orientation to everyone - the artists on stage and the audience. 

Before you begin with a composition, you must know its laws and way of life. Composition in contemporary theatre is not just a technical form, but also a living one: it breathes, speaks to us and conveys the content of the play and the idea. The largest percentage of the success of a performance is based on a brilliant, dynamic composition of the director.

With this practice-oriented course, you can expect to learn a number of things beyond general school knowledge: about the many different types of composition, about secrets of montage and energy management, and how to approach theatre from a compositorial point of view.

This course will be held in 3 zoom meetings of 2 hours each. In case you miss a session, you have the opportunity to watch the recording in the two following days.

Renaissance of the Dialogue - Dialogical Principles

Share

Type:

Description: 

Christine Schmalor
Course for actors with 6 sessions of 2 hours on
Friday 28 May | Tuesday 01 June 2021 | Friday 04 June 2021 | Tuesday 08 June | Friday 11 June | Tuesday 15 June |2021
always at 18:00 – 20:00 UTC+2 | Berlin time

With this seminar I would like to invite you to discover the beauty of dialogue.

For many years we have been seeing mainly monologues on stage, even though many actors are on stage together. We are talking about an age of individualism, in the meantime also about the selfi-generation. The desirable insight “being enough yourself” turns into an inability to communicate, which in turn has become a major theme on stage. The issue of monological existence is influencing the practice at large. Playwrights and authors stopped writing dialogues; directors and actors stopped practicing the art of dialogue. How long is this to continue? Is it not the task of artists to reveal alternatives to reality? Is it not much more interesting to develop thoughts and insights together?

It is time to rediscover and revive the art of dialogue. Especially in times of physical isolation, dialogue is the path to freedom. The stage, once the birthplace of dialogue, calls for a renaissance and rediscovery of the most beautiful ability of human beings – spiritual exchange. More, we are speaking about energy-flow. Possible at the computer? Let’s try it out. Digital media in particular not only requires a completely new approach, but also enables new dimensions and forms of playing with the dialogical principle.

The seminar begins by exploring various forms and principles of dialogue in art. We need the dialogue with the Dialogue. The wisdom of the Dialogue might help us to discover a new potential for artistic and personal development. The moment I open my shell I expose myself to the risk – of losing or winning. Without opening-up a dialogue is not possible and without risk there is no artistic life.

Description: 

Note: this is the second week of a progressive two week series. The first session is here: www.campfr.com

"John has the most extensive knowledge of theatre past and present of anyone I know."(Sarah Daniels)

"Over three decades he has guided me to my greatest writing, has tempered my excesses, encouraged me to continue, to continue, to strive and be better; I fear I may have disappointed him, he has never disappointed me." (David Spencer)

"Scrupulous and considerate, he always made you feel you mattered - a rare experience for playwrights. He didn't say, 'this line is bad'; he identified something good you had done, and made you immediately want to make the rest as good. In John's world, writing and integrity and humane values have always been inseparable." (Meredith Oakes)

John Burgess has worked as a director and producer of new plays for over forty years. He helped found the National Theatre Studio with Peter Gill in 1984 and he was Head of New Writing at the National theatre 1989 -1994. Writers whose work he has premiered include Nicholas Wright, Sarah Daniels, Jonathan Harvey, Judith Johnson, David Spencer, Stephen Wakelam and Meredith Oakes. His productions have been seen at the National Theatre, the Royal Court, the Donmar, the Bush, Stratford East, Riverside Studios and BBC Television as well as abroad in Switzerland, Scandinavia and the US.

Since 2011 John has been running a highly successful writers' group whose graduates have had their work performed at the National Theatre, in the West End, at the Soho Theatre, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Arcola, BBC Radio 4, the Traverse Theatre Edinburgh, the Finborough and Hampstead Theatre and published by Faber and Nick Hern Books. For more details, see John's website.

These five days are about the practice not the theory of playwriting.

Days will be divided into 2 intense two-hour group sessions with assigned reading and set exercises in between, making for eight (or even nine) hour days focused on the practical business of writing for the stage. This second five day period builds on skills acquired during the first week, exploring further, more complex topics such as images, letters, science, group scenes, history, work, and the rhetoric of persuasion

Participants will be guided towards finding individual solutions to specific problems of writing for the stage, enabling beginners to find firm ground beneath their feet and giving the more experienced an opportunity to refine and extend their skills.

Following the success of last year's course CAMP are now offering two consecutive weeks with a second follow-up five day period exploring further more complex topics such as images, science, group scenes, history, work, and the rhetoric of persuasion. If you would like to attend both weeks, we encourage you to apply for a grant here and mention in your application that you intend to come to both courses. Applicants attending both weeks will be awarded a grant towards the cost of the second week.

"Since completing John's course I have gone on to have my first full length play premiered at the Traverse Theatre, a play that will also receive its US premiere in 2017" (Ross Dunsmore)

"I was invited to write for the 40th Miniaturists event at the Arcola Theatre in April 2013, I've had two short plays performed by Script Sessions at the Courtyard Theatre and the New Britannia Theatre. I've recently landed my first seed commission by winning first prize in A Play for the Nation's Youth. This was a national playwriting competition run jointly by Salisbury Playhouse, Nick Hern Books, Out of Joint and BBC Writersroom. None of this could have happened without John's help." (Fiona Doyle, www.curtisbrown.co.uk/client/fiona-doyle)

"John combines an extraordinary knowledge of world drama with a musician's ear for rhythm, tone, atmosphere and feeling. He is the best teacher you will ever have, and he is an artist in the truest sense." (Denise Keane)
