Make Them Care
Friday: 2pm - 5pm
What do you seek in a scene, as an audience? All of us will give different answers, but they sum up to one word, identification. By using emotions on stage the audience relates to your scenes and character. Feelings are something all humanity has in common. In this workshop you will use your feelings to connect with each other and with the audience, you will challenge your partners and yourself emotionally and finally, make people care!
Saturday: 10am - 5pm
The Bench is a slow improv format. There’s a fascinating beauty in taking things slowly on stage. Discovering the little elements that make a difference and can feed our impulses is what trains our observation skills and helps us read our scene partner much better and in much more depth. Ultimately, The Bench trains us to focus on building very strong relationships on stage, that take our scenes to a much deeper and meaningful level.
Go With The Flow
Sunday: 10am - 1pm
As actors, our job is to tell stories. We think we make up the stories, but we don’t. They already exist. We just have to follow them and let them take us where they need to go. In this workshop we will make our lives easier on stage by listening to what our stories have to say and let them make all the decisions for us.
