The devised Monologue

Workshop and individual coaching

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.

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
