Making Your Own Rules
In a two-hour session, Heidi Rodewald, Donna DiNovelli, and Kevin Newbury will begin by discussing their process in creating The Good Swimmer. They ask for participants to bring in a one-page copy of 'found text' they imagine could be used as basis for a full theatrical piece. Each participant (whether writer, composer or director, in any stage of their career) will have a brief time to present their text to the group and how they imagine its fulfillment as a full theatrical evening. The participants will receive feedback from The Good Swimmer team. We define 'found text' as any non-literary material (from ad copy to cookbook recipes) and ask that the creators be passionately attached to its unique qualities.
