We take inspiration from the world of scripted theatre and work to become more effective on stage and how we can work on broadening our playing style by working with character motivations, language, silence and simply how we move on stage.
The workshop will include exercises that combine scripts with improvisation where you practice your ability to listen and adapt your style and language so that your improvised lines sound like they were part of the same theatrical performance as the script. In doing this we also learn how to be both more effective and flexible in character driven storytelling.
This workshop is in English.
