The easiest way to improvise it to speak from a moment of truth, and connect with emotions. This workshop teaches you how easy it can be to connect with your scene partner on positive emotions. We’ll be working on heavily agreeing and with the “and” in the “yes, and”
You will find yourself having fun, and realize that you do not need to work that hard at all to create funny and realistic scenes. This workshop is among others inspired by Stefan working together with Jason Shotts.
