About this Event

WORKSHOP: PLAYING WITH SPACEWORK

Words are overrated! In improv, if an audience is going to believe our characters, dialogue is just one part: they also need to see what’s interesting about their context. This workshop will explore spacework, physicality and your environment to create more dynamic scenes, discover game of the scene, and heighten relationships.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:

Shaun Lowthian (UK) is an improviser, actor and comedy writer. He performs at London’s Free Association with The Wilsons, The Badge, Uncle Glen's Menagerie and Jacuzii.

Shaun is a Writers’ Guild Award-nominee for comedy series Spokke.
