Join celebrated playwright Daniel MacIvor and investigate the process of
creating and developing original text – whether it be monologue,
dialogue, a fully-formed idea, or a vague notion. MacIvor will guide you
over the course of this intensive workshop in finding the differences
and connections between yourself and your idea. Through specially
designed conversations and exercises, MacIvor will lead and inform
participants to take their creations to the next level. This workshop is
designed for playwrights and actors who are interested in creating
performance text.

The Banff Centre’s Theatre Arts Master Class Series is designed to
provide participants unique and intimate access to master artists in a
workshop setting.
