Do you find yourself in “talking head” scenes that take place in no particular location? Feel anxious about initiations or that you’re over-thinking your responses?
In this workshop, we’ll explore techniques to help you get out of your head and get into your body & the space around you. These tools will help you overcome some of the most common scenework challenges.
Taking time to define the physical space not only allows the beginning improviser to feel calm at the top of a scene, it also serves as a strong initiation without having to say a word. By touching objects, giving weight to them, and being affected by them, the advanced improviser adds richness to her scenework, drawing herself, and the audience, in deeper.
Appropriate for all levels of improvisers with some scenework experience.
