“Analog Processes,” a 2-Session Intensive Workshop with Neos Kurt Chiang and Tif Harrison

The Neo-Futurist Prime-Time Season is fast approaching its next offering, Analog, created by Kurt Chiang and directed by Tif Harrison.

For an inside look at the creation of this unique show, Kurt and Tif are offering you the chance to partake in a 2-session workshop based on the writing process of Analog.


Analog Processes 2-Session Intensive
with Kurt Chiang & Tif Harrison
Wednesdays, Dec. 12 & Jan. 9, 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm 

A two part intensive based on the devising process used to create the up-coming Neo-Futurist Prime Time production, Analog, taught by creator Kurt Chiang and director Tif Harrison.

During the first class you will produce a substantial amount of writing through spontaneous creation.  Kurt and Tif will lead the group through a series of exercises, including free writing, writing form memory, transcription of existing texts, and writing within constrained structures.

In the month between classes, the entirety of the writing will be adapted by the instructors and fused together into a series of collaged scripts.  Individually, you will write a finely tuned solo piece to be presented at the second class. In the second class we will read through our creation, and discuss and critique the work.

As proof of you and the ensemble’s work, a physical document of the writing will be constructed, ready for you to take home, and put on your bookshelf.

class fee: $120.  Note: Two tickets to see Analog (shows Feb 28 – April 6) are included in the price of the workshop!

Analog is a highly personal show centered around two things: the handwritten transcription of the entirety of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies over the course of three years, and the exploration of “fate.”  It features the writing and performances of neofuturists Jessica Anne, Kurt Chiang, Trevor Dawkins, and Tim Reid, as well as neo-affiliates Lizi Breit and Hank Volger.  (dir.
