Exploring cultural memory through drama. This one day workshop will explore how first and second generation diaspora writers can draw on both their lived experience of Britain and their cultural memory of elsewhere in creating unique stories.
What kinds of stories, characters and themes recur as we present on stage lives lived both here and ‘there’?
How do writers combine influences from two (or more) worlds to create one cohesive work?
Is there such a thing as a diaspora story, with common features, across playwriting?
And does a fractured cultural experience help or hinder creativity?
