Embodied Dialogue, with Kira Rockwell
Writers for the stage and screen write dialogue for actors who embody those words to tell a story. It is through the actor’s embodiment that the dialogue is imbued with greater emphasis and meaning. But writers of any genre can employ embodied dialogue techniques–such as movement, tempo, and behavior–to enhance and activate the speech of their characters. This craft based, generative seminar gives you the opportunity to learn and practice new skills through in-class writing exercises, group discussion, and close readings of embodied dialogue–– allowing the works of Sanaz Toossi, Eliana Pipes, and Mike Lew to be our guides. Taught through a playwriting lens, this workshop is open to all genres of writers and experience levels. You will leave with a rejuvenated approach to writing dialogue. Online.
