The Power of Character – Advanced Beginners + (3hrs, 16 participants)
“The Power of Character” focuses on celebrating the unique voice of every performer and aims to unlock the range of characters within everyone. We explore the power of strong emotional choices, externals, and the use of object work and environment to build a character with clear points of view and patterns of behavior. This workshop is for anyone who feels stuck, rusty, bored, or simply in need of a refresher on the core strategies of great scene work.
This workshop is capped to 16 participants.
