Synopsis

Improvisation is a discipline that can be challenging, but with the right approach it can be the most rewarding and liberating. Sometimes you need to come up with characters very quickly, and sometimes you have to be yourself. This workshop will focus on Russell’s “must have’s” for your improvisation toolbox, honing your performance skills, and use the “hero’s journey” model to enhance your ability to be an improviser/storyteller.
