If we are telling human stories on stage, then what makes us human?  This workshop invites students to rediscover four powerful forces inside them that allow for improvising moving human characters, scenes, stories, games, and shows. The Reckoning’s Jake Schneider leads this fun and fulfilling class that weaves together 500 year old traditions from Comedia del Arte with some modern Short & Longform Games & Scenes.
