Miller Performing Arts: Pull Back the Curtain 2019 – Seeking Participants

12/03-11/05/2019

Now in its fifth year, Pull Back the Curtain is Hong Kong’s most innovative English-language youth scriptwriting initiative. Join us for our 2019 programme and learn how to write a script that will bring your ideas for the stage to life.
 
From March to May, through a series of workshops led by professional theatre director and children’s theatre playwright Eimear “Mimi” Burns, Pull Back the Curtain 2019 will guide you towards creating your own original 30-minute theatre piece. This year we focus on the art of adaptation and the rhythm of language, looking at how words can inspire movement, and how to incorporate spoken word and poetry into playwriting. Participants will take inspiration from August Strindberg’s classic Miss Julie, and different adaptations of the work, as well as works by renowned playwrights Kate Tempest and Mark Ravenhill.
 
At the end of the programme, two scripts will receive a staged reading and the most promising script will be transformed into a theatre production in September 2019.

The writers of the selected scripts will meet the director, be invited to rehearsals, and must be available to attend all performances and post-performance Meet the Artist sessions.
