PRIME DAY 2 AT IRISH THEATRE INSTITUTE, IN ASSOCIATION WITH AGE & OPPORTUNITY/BEALTAINE

PRIME continuing professional development participants with dramaturg Hanna Slattne

WORKSHOP 2: DRAFTING TO REDRAFT – EXPLORING THE SCRIPT

Since meeting for the first time in May when they immersed themselves in an intensive workshop on the exploration of ideas, stories and structure led by Dramaturg Hanna Slättne, the five PRIME 2017 participants have continued to make progress on their plays. Playwright is a very new venture for most of these actors; they are all at different stages in their process and are grappling with different aspects of crafting and redrafting their plays. PRIME Day 2 is a day-long exploration of different approaches to redrafting and testing their script and ideas. Under the guidance of dramaturg Hanna Slattne, the group will look at character, structure and make plans for the next draft. In addition each participant will participate in a one-to-one feedback session on their individual scripts with Hanna.

prime, developed by Irish Theatre Institute, in partnership with Age & Opportunity focuses on career sustainability, entrepreneurial skills, physical and mental health and well-being for professional actors. prime 2017 offers professional actors an opportunity to re-ignite their creative dynamism, develop their ideas and build their skills in writing for theatre across four days of intensive workshops from May to August.
