This weekend intensive will focus on Physicality, emotional honesty, innocence, vulnerability, joy of the play, simplicity, direct interaction with the audience, and listening (to self, partner and audience).
Each student will have an opportunity to add a more physical and emotional range to their improv and performances. Less verbal and more listening means more opportunity to grow the scene and develop a character.
March 5 & 6 1-5pm each day.
$100.00 + HST
