MORE ABOUT THE CLASS:
Students taking WP2MP explore core Neo-Futurist tenets of honesty, brevity, chance and liveness in order to create short plays in our unique, non-illusory aesthetic. Using games and exercises, weekly writing challenges and regular in-class workshops, students learn specific play formulas and styles that recur on our stage. In the second half of the class, the student ensemble follows a version of the Neo-Futurists’ weekly creative process to pitch, rehearse and perform a menu of their own original two-minute plays. This final show is open to the public, and presented on our stage at The Neo-Futurarium.
There are no prerequisites to participate! You do not need to have any experience in writing, performing, or theater at all. You only need a willingness and curiosity to transform your real-life experience, thoughts and opinions into surprising works of live performance.
