In this course you will learn how to better work with and be more inclusive of neurodivergent artists in your practice, and how being more mindful of neurodivergence can improve your practice as an artist.
Award-winning and published playwright Dave Osmundsen presents a multi-disciplinary look into his work, the state of neurodivergent representation of theatre, and the future of the field as a whole.
You will learn from the playwright about the development of “Light Switch,” and how it changed from first draft to final draft. After watching a virtual reading of the play and reading the final draft of the script, you will hear from various artists who have been involved in the play’s development process.
These artists offer their own unique perspectives on the play’s development, from directing to acting to dramaturgy.
You will also hear and learn from a neurodivergent artistic director who is paving the way for neurodivergent artists to create their own work.
