Description

Often times we enter with such strong ideas that we forget about the most important thing in the room - the audience. We either go too fast without letting them join in or we do too much and scare them off. If you let them, the audience will guide your creative process and tell you exactly what to do.

In this workshop we focus on reading the room by slowing down, unpacking every moment, and listening for the laughs to tell us where to go. Through a series of playful exercises, games and improvised scenes, you’ll be encouraged to take risks, be impulsive, leave your bad ideas at the door, and organically build towards creating a repeatable routine onstage.

This class is for total beginners and experienced performers - you just gotta be cool with looking stupid.
