Creating Autobiographical Theatre

with Bella Heesom

Bella Heesom leads this practical workshop for writers and performers interested in creating their own work.

  • Thu 16 May, 10:00am

Running time: 3 hours

Theatre has the power to remind us of our common humanity, to make us feel less alone, and cultivate empathy with others. Creating work out of truth rather than fiction can have an even greater impact. But how do you turn the chaos of thoughts, feelings and memories into a play with dramatic structure?

In this workshop Bella will lead practical exercises, experimenting with post-dramatic techniques with a strong focus on the relationship between the performer/s and the audience. Suitable for writers and performers interested in creating their own work.

'Bella's workshop was insightful, inspiring and informative. She helps make the theoretical practical, in a cogent and compelling workshop' (Simon Snashall)

Bella is co-founder of All About You, her theatre company with Donnacadh O'Briain.  Their latest show, Rejoicing At Her Wondrous Vulva The Young Woman Applauded Herself, will premiere at Ovalhouse in May 2019.
