A Beginner's Guide to Devising Theatre [9781350025943]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Much of the theatre we make starts with a script and a story given to us by someone else. But what happens when we're required to start from scratch? What if we could make theatre from our own ideas, our own perspective, our own stories? This book, written by the artistic directors of the award-winning young people's performance company Junction 25 and aimed at the devising novice, explores creative ways to devise original theatre work from a contemporary stimulus. It offers a structure within which to approach a creative process, including ideas on finding a starting point, generating material, composition and design; it offers practical ideas for use in rehearsal; and it presents grounding in terminology that will support a confident and informed approach to production. The book features contributions from some of the young performers who have been a part of Junction 25's work, as well as key artists who work professionally on devised theatre, including Tim Etchells, Tony Kushner, Anne Bogart, Deidre Heddon and Liz Lehrman. Throughout, the work of Junction 25 is used to illustrate the concepts and ideas set out in the book. A Beginner's Guide to Devising Theatre is ideal for any student faced with the challenge of devising work from scratch and offers constructive guidance, which supports the requirements of students taking Drama and Theatre courses. The book includes a foreword by theatre critic Lyn Gardner.
