Teden slovenske drame

Playwriting workshop

mentor Nina Mitrović

Every year, the playwriting workshop at the week of Slovenian drama tangibly contributes to playwriting creativity.
The workshop focuses on the process of creating a play: from inspiration and character development, drama conflict and structure to the writing techniques and rewriting and creating the final version.
Theoretical and practical work take place simultaneously, [this year] with the help of examples from plays, screenplays, poetry, psychiatry literature and participants’ works. We will analyse the texts that the participants submitted to join the workshop, focusing on the elements we’ll be working on during the workshop. Daily written tasks will be set to whet participants’ imagination. The goal of these exercises is also to increase the understanding of what’s been learnt. The participants will have to use the new knowledge for tasks that require creating a story, characters and structure within a drama situation.
The participants will have a chance to show the acquired knowledge in the final work – writing a short play supervised by a mentor. The workshop will conclude with the presentation at the Week of Slovenian Drama where the works of the participants will be presented as a joint drama piece.
