Description

Stronger Scenes, Stronger Characters (writing workshop) with Paneet Singh

This interactive workshop focuses on the development of a powerful scene by examining how to create dynamic, well-rounded characters, strong motivations, balanced scene structure, and cultivate authentic conflict with real stakes and tension. Attendees will examine and analyze existing scenes from playwrights as well as have a chance to develop and workshop scenes of their own.




Paneet Singh Bio

Paneet Singh is a playwright and filmmaker whose work is largely inspired and informed by Sikh and South Asian culture and history. His best known works are his two stage plays The Undocumented Trial of William C. Hopkinson (Monsoon Festival of Performing Arts), and the critically-acclaimed A Vancouver Guldasta (Diwali in BC/The Cultch), which received an honourable mention in “The Best of Vancouver Theatre in 2018” by Vancouver Presents. Paneet was also picked as one of 2018’s “most exciting fresh faces to watch” by Colin Thomas.

Other film and theatre credits include All's Well That Ends Well (Apprentice Director, Bard on the Beach), Flowers From Venables (Director, Woodenbull Films).
