Wherever you are at in your solo theatre journey, whatever level of experience, even if you are just curious because the idea of creating a solo show has been dancing around in your head, this workshop will meet you where you are and use spiritual techniques such as meditation and visualization to guide you to the next level.
All that is required to attend is a willingness to explore, a pen and paper, or a laptop. This workshop offers a safe and supportive space to explore new material.
