Step back in time with instructor Sarah Tuft, as she recounts what it was like to wake up, twenty-one years ago, to the Twin Towers already collapsed, and how her instinct to “run towards the flames,” led her to write the docu-play, “110 Stories.” In this workshop, Sarah will share, not just her experience, but also tips on creating documentary theatre, including how to build trust when engaging with a community in crisis, how to identify and conduct the right interview, and how to structure those interviews into a moving play that tells the story you want to tell.
