Description

Getting Closer
We see wonderful scenes in films and on theater stages portraying (romantic) love, but for some reason this rarely happens in improv. Most of the time improvisers will avoid these situations or turn them into gaggy comedy. How can we express deep believable feelings on stage and get the audience to "aww" with us? How can we get more comfortable touching and being touched by each other? How will we beat the fears concerning intimacy on stage and let ourselves tell the full stories of our characters?

This workshop concentrates on honing our skills in love scenes, experiencing and exploring closeness on stage and sharing our fears, insights and ideas on the theme. By creating a safe environment we have a wonderful possibility to learn more about getting closer.

This workshop is for improvisers with some experience
