This Summer, Drama League Directing Fellowship alumnus Dennis Yueh-Yeh Li is offering an exciting virtual exploration of dramatic arts.

From imagination to reality, Explore! Dramatic Arts will guide students through creating a space to tell their unique stories. In this four week intensive workshop, students will learn to turn their stories into dramatic writing, culminating in a theatrical performance. Participants will explore and  experience lives from different perspectives, and create a world to tell stories of our own. From writing to directing, Explore! Dramatic Arts reveals how a theatrical production comes to life.


Week 1: What’s your Story?

Students will share the stories they find inspiring and will try various ways to tell stories

Week 3: Where does your story take place? Creating the space for your story.
