Event description

Description

Being truly present means a lot more than listening with the mind. Most experienced improvisers have learned to be intellectually present, but we too often fail to be simultaneously present at a physical and/or emotional level. This workshop will explore the sort of authentic presence that allows us to receive and make offers from the heart and body, not just the mind. We will explore the sort of mindfulness required to combine these three levels of presence through exercises, scene work, and exploration. By the end of the workshop, performers should have an increased awareness of how being fully present feels on stage, of the possibilities performing at this level allows, and of the tools and opportunities available to continue growing at this level of performance.

Skills offered in class: Presence, Acting, Getting Out Of Your Head, Dynamic Scenework
