Documentary storytelling

In the summer Lidia will be teaching at a summer course at the Theatre Academy in Malmö. The course in documentary storytelling is aimed at actors, dancers or other artists who are interested in interviewing techniques in order to be able to carry out stage works with a focus on documentary narration.

The course is designed to give knowledge about interviewing techniques, structuring of collected material and how these can be transformed into scenic stories that can be presented to an audience. The teaching takes place in workshop form, where the work is aimed at developing and implementing the students own performing arts projects, individually or in groups, with a focus on documentary narration.

Lidia is giving this course in co-operation with Daniel Wedel, director and dramaturge. Lidia is responsible for the last part of the course that is about developing and implementing the documentary material to stage performances.
