With SPW you will write, develop and perform a unique and personal 15-minute solo performance piece in 8 sessions. You'll work collaboratively -- get loads of support -- and learn a variety of writing and performance techniques. Under the guidance of a experienced teacher and director, Martha Rynberg, you'll try new things and s-t-r-e-t-c-h creatively. That's right, we're not kidding, you'll write a solo show in 8 weeks and then perform it, on stage, with a real live audience.

ABOUT MARTHA RYNBERG (Teacher & Director):
MARTHA RYNBERG collaborates with performance artists to find the story in personal histories and social/political movements. Her directorial debut was the internationally acclaimed W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour, and the basis for FX television series, Totally Biased. Martha works with performers all over the country. She is also a founding member of Mixed, Blend & Whole, a queer multidisciplinary and multicultural performance collaborative. Martha's own work, Lady Parts, explores the dark and hilarious corners of inheritance, parenting, and internalized misogyny. Really, it's funny.
