CREATIVE WRITING, STORYTELLING & CREATIVE PERFORMING

Creativity is the engine of the 21st century. The contemporary world is full of ideas, concepts, products, and people trying to find their way through this maze. Every start-up has to have not only the idea and (future) product, but first of all the story to tell both to the potential investors as well as users, now and future, which brings us to the necessity of creativity and storytelling. Whatever you do, you have to have a story.

The other intent of this module is bringing together people of different backgrounds and knowledge, in order to engage them in working towards a common goal in a new way – through writing a piece of fiction and performing it. Uniting those two fields gives students the possibility to try out their own abilities in a safe environment and also cooperate with other students, bringing in new viewpoints and experiences. This is one of the best ways of establishing teams that have innovation at their core.

Session 4

Exercises in creative writing, analysing, discussing

WEEK 1: Combines individual and collective work: reading and discussing different works, writing exercises of different genres and styles, students can but do not have to write poetry, instead they can express themselves in any chosen way expressed through writing. Exercises of the first week are meant to open up the creativity and give a closer look into writing/storytelling through the freedom of thought. This means working together during the seminars-lectures and individual work after that.

WEEK 2: We’ll move on to practical voice training: how to use different registers by directing voice into different body parts (head, throat, chest), giving it strength and finding new ways of expressing oneself. Getting to know one’s voice will also bring along the better knowledge of one’s own body, from the inside out as voice brings the body along, opens it up in a new way. This week the cooperation with fellow students begins.

WEEK 3: Is dedicated to cooperation and final performance. By the end of the second week people will team up into duos or trios, in order to start working on common writing and performing. They are free to choose whatever they want to write, be it a story, a poem, a play etc. The only prerequisite is that they have to perform it together. Working on the writing and performing simultaneously will increase the courage and trust, both on a personal as well as on a team level.
