503Studio Masterclass: Creating Characters
In this masterclass, Sabrina Mahfouz leads a discussion on creating characters specifically for stage. There will be a focus on fictionalising yourself as a character as well as encouraging thinking beyond the ‘knowing your character inside-out’ process that has been normalised in contemporary British theatre. Exercises will follow the discussion to try and spark ideas for new plays by creating specific yet ‘unfilled in’ characters.
THIS MASTERCLASS IS CURRENTLY SOLD OUT.
