FINDING CHARACTER & MANAGING POINT OF VIEW: an improv workshop with Rich Talarico

About this Event

Character = choice. Learn how to line up your own choices with gifts from your teammates as you create each other’s characters instantly on stage. Feel the power of POV - the choice that guides all choices. See how easy it is to discover your character’s world view, the filter through which only you look, and how to keep “playing the game” of your character throughout a scene and a show.

Join Rich Talarico, a 25+ year improv vet and alumnus of The Second City and Improv Olympic, as he leads this character workshop that will leave you with many tools to create characters instantly.
