Assignments are given at the end of each session and participants have a week to work on it on their own time, the amount is determined entirely by the participant and is part of the learning process to understand how much time one needs. The weekly sessions are for feedback, discussion, troubleshooting, and information sharing. This two part process, making and critiquing, are integral to the learning and refining of skills and technique. It gets progressively more challenging but by no means impossible as the weeks go by.
Participants from the Western and Eastern Hemispheres are in the workshop with actors and theatre-makers in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, and Mexico as well.
