Theatre Council of Tasmania presents’ Telling Stories
Time & Location
About the Event
The dual role of the creative team is to tell the story and honour the writer. In every great production, each member of the team is working for this singular goal. This workshop will be focussed on creators of stories; writers, actors, musicians, composers, designers and any theatre maker who wants to better understand the creative process.
Ever had a great idea for a song but couldn’t write the music? Well, as part of this session Dr Asher Warren from the University of Tasmania will introduce the project ‘Living Room Musicals’. This is an initiative that aims to encourage Australians to tell their own, local stories – through the use of a do-it yourself toolkit of original compositions by some of Tasmania’s leading composers. Inspired by the traditions of salon theatre and childhood play, the toolkit encourages the performance of these stories as small-scale productions by individuals, groups or families within their homes.
It also provides a great framework to investigate telling stories through songs.
