This workshop will concentrate on the important element of Character. While the story may be key, good character-play on stage is what makes the story come alive. The focus will be to direct attention to introducing the audience to the meat of the story the characters, and the relationships they share. We will explore various techniques and formats that make the transition from improviser to character smoother, quicker, and easier. We will work on using our faces, body parts, words, props, and points-of-view to build compelling characters and relationships.
