MYTH-Appropriation: Creation Stories


Creation Stories

Six timeless tales.
Six new plays.
All created in just six days.

Saturday May 24, 2007

Inspired by Creation Myths from around the world, this event continued Rorschach Theatre’s extreme play development event “MYTH-Appropriation” – a process that begins when six playwrights choose at random six related stories and then have one night to adapt them into short plays.  The directors, designers and casts then spend the rest of the week developing the plays, rehearsing them and designing them, culminating in an exciting one-night event. Subsequent MYTH-appropriation events tackled everything from St Nicholas stories to Urban Legends.
