Free – but space is limited. RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org with “Metamorphosis Workshop” in the subject line to reserve a spot.
This practical workshop takes Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis (1915) as a starting point for making theatre. Through a process of deconstruction and intervention participants will generate short performances inspired by this seminal novella. Through a series of devising exercises participants will be introduced to the concept of deconstruction as a means of exposing and analysing meaning in order to produce considered and engaging theatre.
In order to participate in the workshop individuals must read Metamorphosis and bring four things inspired by the story: a photograph, a piece of music, an object and a newspaper/magazine article – don’t be obvious, see what happens and where it takes you both creatively and intellectually. You will be working physically, so come in suitable clothing. Bring a copy of the story, a notebook/sketchpad, pens and a smart phone.
Dr. Louie Jenkins is a senior lecturer at University of Chichester, UK, and Visiting Faculty in the Theatre-Performance Making MFA at CIIS.
