Emerging Writers’ Festival Adelaide Roadshow: The Writers’ Masterclass

Fifth Quarter, Bowden
12.30: PERFORMATIVE WRITING
What does it mean to write for the stage or screen, crafting words for others to enact and characters for others to inhabit? Has new media made playwriting obsolete, or is the ‘undownloadable’ aspect of theatre precisely what makes it so special and exciting? Professional playwrights and critics discuss what ‘performative writing’ means to them, and how we can all build notions of performativity into our own repertoire as writers.
