Get devising with @DevisingTheatre.
Got an idea? Try it out in the space – the only way of knowing whether it works.
Make sure all the characters in your piece undergo change.
Experiment with space: change your physical relationship with the audience.
How is your character different to you? How is she/he similar?
Stuck devising your piece? Ask two old ladies what they’re saying about you. Check out: ow.ly/dlaD4
Don’t give away too much about your characters: create suspense.
Can you substitute dialogue for a still image or a a piece of movement?
How does your character change through the piece?
Play with time structure – not all plays have to start at the beginning of the story and end with the end.
Do you want to move your audience? Use music – European film music is the best!
Experiment with space. Change your physical relationship with the audience.
Use silence and stillness – they can be very powerful.
Hold back information from the audience: create suspense.

Be aware of the space around you and between you.
View conflict as an opportunity to share a different point of view.
What do you want your audience to feel?
