About this event

  • 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Mobile eTicket

The goal of this workshop is to complete a short story (500-600 words) based on three songs. One song for the overall story and two for the characters. For the two other songs there should be a sense of duality, two different experiences, two songs that compliment each other but have some key differences in tempo or style.

The story will need to include/express these key things:

1. Character thoughts (at least two characters - one song per character)

2. Their emotions

3. One or two conversations

4. The thoughts and emotions of any other secondary characters as well

5. A location been to (setting)

The Workshop challenge - the story has to be set or start in one of these locations:

1. A home

2. A restaurant / café

3. A hospital

4. A convenience store / shop

5. A workplace

For the best experience, please arrive on time, thank you!

The goal is to use music as an inspiration for character thoughts and for an overall story.

Hope you join and enjoy! :)
