WORKSHOPS / WARSZTATY
COMBINING SCENE + GAME (together with Mark Raterman)
Learn to play relationship + game at the same time. In this workshop we will learn how to deepen the types of relationship scenes we are playing, making them more active and interesting -- then combine it with learning how to play game from an emotional point of view. The result: a hybrid scene that combines the best of both improv techniques.10-16 students, RED TRAIL // SZLAK CZERWONY
This class will focus on using emotion to heighten your scene work and help you find new levels to play with in your shows. “I didn’t know what to do next” or “I wasn’t sure what the scene was about” are things we’ve all said as improvisors. This class will work on simplifying scene work to easy emotional choices, focusing on the “we” on stage and building our scenes line by line thus removing the need for zany plot based scenes.10-16 students, GREEN TRAIL // SZLAK ZIELONY
EMOTIONAL SHOW DON'T TELL
This class will work on doing less verbal work in our scenes and opening ourselves up physically and using the powerful gift of silence to enhance our scene work. Scenes will focus more on showing what we are feeling vs telling by focusing on stage picture, physicality, and using shorter more concise sentences. Turn off the writer part of your brain and move from your gut!10-16 students, GREEN TRAIL // SZLAK ZIELONY
