In SPW's Classic Short you will write, develop and perform a unique and personal 15-minute solo performance piece in just 8 sessions.
You'll work collaboratively -- get loads of support -- and learn a variety of writing and performance techniques. Under the guidance of an experienced director, you'll try new things and s - t - r - e - t - c - h creatively.
(That's right, no kidding, you'll write a solo show in 8 weeks and then perform it, on stage,
with a real live audience!)
The Classic Short is about making the most out of 15 minutes. You can sketch a whole life story, or hone one moment in time. Folks come back to the Classic Short over and over. And over. Because it works.
This class is limited to six participants. Every week, each performer works on stage, using written work, improv and dynamic feedback to define and craft a story. Martha's coaching extends to include 60 minutes of outside of class phone support and/or script review.
