Ten thousand idiots

Ten thousand idiots will teach you how to write good plays. But it's also a case study of how we can ease, speed up and deepen the creative process, and what art education for hybrid artists could look like today.

The title Ten thousand idiots refers to the countless voices that live, write and play in us today. Learning to distinguish your inner voices, to play with them and to switch between them at lightning speed, is the basis of the creative process.
