Get out of your head and into the scene
This workshop focuses on how performers can find intimacy and familiarity with their scene partners, and create relaxed atmospheres to use as a creative impulse to drive scene work. The exercises work on getting performers out of their heads and using their energy to focus on and react to their scene partner, building narrative and relationships with depth and history.
The workshop will help you develop specific skills that enable you to perform grounded and vulnerable work that is engaging and funny. It will help people turn off the need to be clever and just be in the moment, fully.
