MOOC #18

Creating a personal narrative
in documentary theatre


Is there enough creative space for actors, directors, set designers and composers left in documentary theatre? This question stems from the method of this form of theatre – authentic sources demand ethical approach and little variation on the original story. The aim of this seminar is to explore this problematic issue, find means of creating a personal narrative and remain creative in this form of theatre.
