The workshop took place in Tricase from 13 to 18 of June.
During that time all ten participants archived a full process of developing and closing a dramatic scene, from the idea over the general topic of climate changes. The process was interactive between me and the participants, so everybody was proposing and suggesting ideas to others work… During their writing process I tried to point and define some of the basic rules or tools of playwriting. (Solid conflict, crises or disorder of some kind, dramatic context, characters in that situation, motivation, suspense, dramatic irony, peripeteia… etc.) The main goal was to inspire, motived and guide participants to get maximum of dramatic possibilities from the idea they choose.
