Cory Hinkle: The Magical Qualities of Objects Onstage
Date: June 11, 2013
Time: 6:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Location: The Playwrights' Center, 2301 E Franklin Ave., Minneapolis, MN 55406
To sign up: Contact Julia Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-332-7481.
In our writing, how should we think about the props and objects we choose to use? How does an object create/reflect character? How does an object create plot? This workshop will focus on the special and magical qualities of objects when we put them on a stage. Come discuss how to be more intentional with the objects you choose to use, how to use those objects to create deeper and more three-dimensional characters and how to use them to create more suspenseful plots. We'll end the seminar with a fun writing exercise, and hopefully have enough time for participants to share the results.
Taught by Core Writer and 2012-2013 McKnight Advancement Grant Fellow Cory Hinkle
