Playing Nicely With Others

Do you find it hard to get your students to honestly look and listen to each other? To really hear what their scene partners are saying, react to what their scene partners are doing? It's often hard for professional actors - and it's one of the biggest obstacles to creating honest and engaging theatre.

In this workshop, we will break down elements of "connection" with simple explorations and techniques that can be used at any level of theatre. The aspiration of this work is to create safe, trusting relationships that allow actors to be authentic and expressive through rehearsals and performance.

Beyond the application in the theatre, it is my hope these explorations help artists become more confident with who they are, and more present with the people around them.
