Karen Graci – From Moment One
Feel overwhelmed in scenes?
Thinking too much?
Doubting your instincts as a performer?
This workshop specifically focuses on how natural, honest choices from the very first moment in scenes lead to solid scene work. Students learn how to build their confidence by tapping into the power of immediate physical, emotional, and vocal choices, and discover ways to create these organic starting points. This workshop challenges students to trust their instincts, all the while balancing character development, scenic relationships and game.
Basic improv skills preferred, but not required.
