 Mike Alfreds is offering a free hour-long preview of the Storytelling/Adaptation Workshop he will be holding during December/January. It is based on the techniques he describes in his book, Then What Happens? // It deals with two disciplines: the actor as a multifaceted storyteller; and ways of transforming a piece of non-dramatic writing, intended to be read (novel, story, legend, biography, poem), into a viable theatre experience, intended to be performed. // The work takes the actors into new areas of performance experience in which they not only create characters, but also become hosts, narrators, commentators, critics, designers, stage hands, musicians, editor… In short, they take on all the functions required to create theatre, even some required for film. These techniques increase their flexibility, range of expressiveness and function. Actors who experience this way of working find it empowering.// The purpose is for an actor or actors, working in an essentially empty space, to discover the appropriate techniques to put an entire book onstage, being true to its spirit, but also to its language and conventions. The intention is not to turn the material into a conventional play, but to find fresh dramatic equivalents of the techniques and devices used by the writer, so that the material is transformed into a viable and fresh piece of theatre. // The workshop explores narrative points of view, tense, plot, structure, style of language, levels of characterisation, transitions, the dramatization of descriptive narration… // We will be using specific texts, so participants should have sufficient knowledge of English to be able to deal with possibly heightened and varying styles of language.
