About This Event
Let’s slow things down. In this workshop, we are going to explore how we can use silence in scenes. Perfect for anyone who wants some chill, nourishing improv. Especially people who may have brain fog, speech difficulties, slower reactions and anyone who feels nervous at fast-paced improv.
What to expect:
· Exploring how we can build and release tension in a scene using silence.
· Using silence to focus on the relationship between characters.
· Finding non-verbal ways to express our choices in a scene.
This is a great way to broaden the skills in your improv toolkit and find ways to stay involved even if you are not feeling your best on the day.
