Experience how to play using emotions to get out of your head. Forget about CROW, emotions are where it’s at. Everyone has experience of their own emotions so this workshop will give players the framework to experiment with projection using emotions. We’ll work on emotional projection in scene starts for slow-prov, how to use emotions effectively in quick-prov and games, and move onto coaching full scenes. Additionally, players will learn how to use the stage and stage positioning to heighten emotion and increase tension for the both the characters and the audience.
This advanced workshop is for those with some performance experience.
