Part workshop, part masterclass Raucous Exchanges is an online space for the exploration of writing for performance and building immersive stories with creative technology. Designed and delivered by industry experts and in response to a growing demand, Creative Director Sharon Clark and three recognised industry leaders will present the workshops for anyone wanting to explore and experiment with new ways of thinking about and building theatre stories.
Who are these workshops for?
Writers, theatremakers, students and anyone who is curious about how their stories and work may shift or expand when they look to work with a range of diverse disciplines and collaborators.
What is the format?
The sessions will incorporate explorations around creative process, case study sharings, participation through tasks and a discussion forum to ask questions around collaboration and practice. Delivered via Zoom, the sessions will enable you to consider your own practice/writing whilst engaging with Raucous and international collaborators to openly share skills, challenges and knowledge.
