The second session of Euphoric Ink’s MA module – ’20/20 Vision’ – kicks off this afternoon, with Leo Butler as its special guest. The MA in Dramatic Writing course at Central St Martin’s aims to create a new model for training dramatic writers in the UK.
Ola is looking forward to a workshop with My Big Phat Writers’ Group at the West Yorkshire Playhouse today – a Script Yorkshire / My Big Phat Writers Group collaboration. The day will consist of a practical workshop and discussion about the usefulness and effectiveness of culturally specific groups and their impact on the mainstream.
The umbrella title of Euphoric Ink’s module on voice and vision is ’20\20 Vision’. As part of the module, we are curating a number of ‘Guest Sessions’, to which we have invited some of our favourite and deemed most exciting artists and industry practitioners to come and meet the students. Our special guests have been invited to think about their 20/20 Vision; where we will be in the year 20/20? Who will we be? what will be thinking about and writing about?
On Thursdays and Fridays from January 2015, you can find Ola at the Royal Court Market Stall at Tachbrook Street Market, trading a variety of theatre paraphernalia in exchange for stories. ‘No cash involved, simply share a tale and that’s a sale.’ For more information, visit the Royal Court Theatre’s website.
“We’re great at singing, dancing, sprinting, and fighting…so why would we bother writing for the theatre?”. With these words, in October 2004 … Ola Animashawun launched his groundbreaking initiative, Critical Mass. So called as it was designed to create a critical mass of British playwrights from minority ethnic backgrounds, to truly represent the diverse range of voices in contemporary British Theatre. Purposeful, wilful, provocative, mischievous, intelligent, cutting and sharp – these are the foundations on which he built the Critical Mass, playwriting programme … So join him as he presents ‘Has It Got Legs?’ – a three hour workshop that scrutinizes his idea … and your ideas…
The MA in Dramatic Writing course at Central St Martins aims to create a new model for training dramatic writers … working in partnership with nine ‘Masters’ and industry organisations who have led the way in dramatic writing training in the UK.
The Year of Experimentation is a new writing festival taking place at The Platform Theatre at Central Saint Martins from 3 July – 4 July 2014 … Ola is delivering a FREE playwriting masterclass as part of Day One, which will offer masterclasses to writers, students, the public and the industry on writing for theatre, film, television, radio and digital media.
Further to finishing the 11-week Critical Mass programme in December 2013, 10 scripts have been received by the Belgrade Theatre and we’re now in the process of reading them all. Hopefully we’ll have enough material for a showcase of rehearsed readings later in the year.
Ola will be starting a new 11-week writers’ group tonight at the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry. Critical Mass is a programme for budding playwrights aged 18 and above from Black and Minority Ethnic Communities. This is Ola’s ninth year of running Critical Mass at venues across the UK.
