Turned Tales – Creating a script from interviews
A special workshop on the magic of turning interviews into scripts, arranged by Aberration
5.30 to 7pm Friday 27 May. Meet at 5.15pm at Aberystwyth Arts Centre box office to go to the room (Creative Unit 5 & 6). £5, book in advance, limited to 15 places
Tom Marshman is a performance artist who transforms everyday accounts into theatre. For his Kings Cross (Remix) theatre project about 1980s gay London (pictured), Tom went through a process of having group chats over tea, then more intimate one-on-one interviews, which were recorded and transcribed before being worked into a script.
In this workshop, Tom will give an insight into his process, share tips, and talk about the issues of working with other people’s stories. He hopes to inspire people to start to collect stories and see that everyone has a fascinating tale to tell, even if they don’t know it yet.
Workshop tickets £5 from Aberystwyth Arts Centre box office.
After the workshop, Tom will be performing an extract from Kings Cross (Remix) at Aberration: Out for Summer – an evening of theatre, spoken word and music with an LGBT theme.
