Description


The workshop

C​haracter Explosion - Characters are at the heart of improv. They hold us in the reality and build a connection with the audience. In this workshop, we’ll focus on character variety –from goofy to grounded, absurd to vulnerable, and everything in between. At the end of this workshop you’ll be holding onto your character choices with greater strength and exploring their depths with more confidence.
