Devised Theatre

What Is Devising?

Devising is loosely defined as the process of collaboratively creating a new work without a pre-existing script wherein the collaborators are also the performers.  I say loosely because every devising company creates their own method of working based on the subject of investigation and the strengths of the collaborators.  Not every company member must perform for it to be a devised piece, but the majority often does.  In short, the collaborative creators are also the performers.
