This workshop will explore character development using aspects of Carl Jung's work. The workshop will emphasize the inner life of characters and how and why they respond to the story set up by the playwright. How and why does a character think/respond to circumstances? How does the family background/environment play a role?

Dael Orlandersmith is an actress, poet and playwright who is best known for her Obie Award-winning Beauty's Daughter and the 2002 Pulitzer Prize Finalist in Drama, Yellowman. Her latest project, a co-production between Berkeley Rep and the Goodman is Black N Blue Boys/Broken Men in which she plays male characters who have been abused. She will be doing a reading of that work at Austin Community College as part of their Arts and Humanities Festival on April 4th.
