Live improv performance is a visual medium, let’s start activating that creative space! If you’re bored by ‘talking heads’ scenes, this workshop will break you out of your rut. Students will learn and practice physical theatre tools to gain insight into how to animate their scenework. This workshop plays with comedic tension, comedic timing, and stage composition to make every scene look and feel like something grand is happening.
