Up to 2-hours £250 + VAT

Workshops will create a highly stimulating, provocative and mischievous environment and act as a catalyst for the participants’ own artistic expression.

Based on the often-asked question, “Where do you get your ideas from?”, Stage 1 of the workshop will include a physical warm-up and creative tasks aimed at supporting ideas generation. Drawing upon examples and case studies from Mark Murphy’s work, and other devisers and producers in theatre, film and literature, this section also touches on elements of structure and story design.

Stage 2 of the workshop involves putting theory into practice, understanding the value constructive appraisal within a creative process. Group work and sharing of ‘work in progress’ alongside guided group critique will enable participants to view one another’s contributions through a more liberating lens, enabling positive revision and development of their work. Time permitting the workshop will end with a Q&A session.
