ATF 2015 Writing Room #1 - Place
Filmed at the Australian Theatre Forum
Seymour Centre, Sydney, 21 January 2015
The first in the Writing Room series, hosted by Playwriting Australia’s Tim Roseman at the 2015 Australian Theatre forum, focuses on writing for, about, or to evoke particular places in the theatre.
Concepts of place, as they relate to the content of a play, function on many levels, from the domestic to our national narrative. Exploring the impact of place on how we write and how it affects the kinds of stories we tell is a roomful of our country’s leading theatre-makers, lead by guest panelists Jane Bodie, Kylie Calwell, Tommy Murphy and theatre critic John McCallum.
