Using observation and sense memory techniques 7th and 8th grade students have been learning how to develop characters, themes and dialogue.
The goal of this week's monologue & scene workshop is for students to learn a new set of skills for observing their environment and expressing themselves, skills that heighten their sense of place, perception and purpose. These building tools enable them to create individual monologues which (a selection of) will be performed on Tuesday.
Hopefully, through the writing and production experience, students will gain confidence in both expressing themselves, and in sharing their discoveries.
The Monologue & Scene Workshop serves as a prep course for the high school Playwriting Workshop that is also taught by Marfa Live Arts each spring. In its seventh year, the high school workshop has resulted in over 475 one-act plays written by Marfa students.
Tuesday’s Winter Theater Showcase is a free event, doors at 6:30pm, show is at 7pm.
