The devised Monologue

It is with great pleasure that I have been able to see many interesting projects that started in the SOLO course or had just begun to be realised on stage. Artists from all continents have exchanged their stories here and inspired each other… That’s why I like to offer this course every now and then.

Workshop and individual coaching

The SOLO course supports artists who are creating a monologue, a monodrama, a solo performance or their own devised theatre evening.

The SOLO course is likewise aimed at all those who are currently taking a fresh look at their audition repertoire, because this can be about more than just a few pretty monologues, but about presenting your own artistic personality.

In any case, you need a roadmap for your steps. Working on oneself and with oneself is a journey into the unknown with the very practical questions: How do I structure my own artistic path? What do I have to keep in mind? How do I work with myself? 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.
  • Working with the artistic image – finding it, shaping it and stepping into it.
  • The art of composition as the basis and compass of designing a mono-performance or a monologue

Theory and insights want to be put into practice artistically; therefore, in all topics, joint practical exercises will help to understand more and to make the often lonely process both enjoyable and productive.

The SOLO course consists of 3 joint meetings with 3 hours each; with lecture, discussion and practical exercises to try out immediately together. After each meeting you will have a one-hour personal coaching session the following week to deepen the topic and apply it to your own project; dates by arrangement. Further coaching hours can then additionally be booked as needed.
Each meeting has a clearly outlined theme, so you can choose to attend all or just one. 

SOLO 1 – Above All

FINDING my theme – OPENING all dimensions of a theme – GIVING VOICE to my theme

SOLO 2 – The creative mind flow

Intertextuality – game and chaos – THINK BIG!

SOLO 3 – Composition

Building your fundament – your compass – your ARTISTIC LANGUAGE
