with Lucy Smith

June 5 & 6, 1-3PM on Zoom

No yoga or previous meditation experience is necessary to take this class.  

Playwrights write with more than our minds, we write with our bodies. Through yoga, meditation and writing prompts; participants are invited to unlock their own inner mysteries, personal power and unique and essential voice. 

The great playwright, teacher and director Maria Irene Fornes, famous for her writing labs at INTAR* and her successful and radical playwriting career, started every writing prompt with at least ten minutes of Yoga. Fornes did this because she believed it allows our brains to disconnect and our bodies to lead. This work can tap into our subconscious and release stories that we have yet to tell.

Explore your multitudes in this writing workshop taught by Lucy Smith. This four week course will explore writing through the chakra system. The chakras are in our energetic architecture. Movement followed by writing prompts can aid in meaning-making in our creative work and our lives. This workshop is designed to help playwrights explore character, storytelling and self.

*INTAR Theater, with its varied programs, including a MainStage Season and the NewWorks Lab, has played a major role in identifying, supporting, nurturing, developing and producing unique theatrical Latino voices that have made a significant impact in American dramatic writing.
