Dive into your own creativity. Make your own work.

Ghost River Theatre Artistic Director Eric Rose leads a four-day intensive designed to pilot established and emerging artists through an introduction to devised theatre methodologies.

Open to adventurous artists in all media, our intensive will foster an innovative environment where participants will develop, learn and experiment with new tools for creative expression. The intensive demands rigorous participation from individuals through hands-on exercises based on the unique artistic practices Ghost River Theatre has forged in the creation of such shows as the Last Voyage of Donald Crowhurst and The Highest Step in the World.

Topics include

  • Collaborative creation dynamics

  • visual approaches to storytelling

  • non-traditional text generation

  • the key principles of healthy creation practices
