By being physical on stage, we lift improv out of the “talking heads” syndrome and into exciting and theatrical worlds. By being physical, we engage both ourselves and our audience on a visceral level. How do we portray Violence, Friendship, Intimacy, Love, Lust?
Also, how do we move within and through scene locations, in ways that add to the story and also to the magic of the theatrical experience?
GET IN YOUR BODY!
We’ll look at ways to do all of these things in this class!
