Authentic fiction: scripting self with Troels Hagen Finden and Katrina Bugaj (Out of Balanz)

In this workshop we’ll investigate how to use our own personal histories, experiences and beliefs, rather than fictional characters, to create new work. Using games, exercises and improvisations, we’ll look at how to use the actual and the imagined, the heightened and the everyday, side by side, in order to create works of authentic fiction.

Out of Balanz’s approach is rooted in devising and ensemble theatre practice. With an emphasis on rigorous experimentation, playful exploration, and exchange, they seek to further the creation and understanding of artistic expression.
