About the Event

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

Mythology from across the world contains some common elements that speak to us across barriers of race, religion, language and culture. From the demi-gods of Greek myth to the heroes of Indian mythology, some recurring story patterns seem to speak to us in a timeless fashion. In this workshop we will engage with these patterns to trigger our own creative inspiration, and to infuse our writing with energy and imaginative possibility. The workshop games, writing exercises and methods will draw on popular industry formats like the Hero’s Journey, comparative mythology, and the relationship between theatre, ritual and liminality. While this sounds like a lot of hard work, the focussed effort leads to reward! Much like the ancient call to adventure offered to the hero, this workshop invites you to leave the world of the known and venture into the unknown! Be brave! Your destiny beckons!
