This workshop strengthens scene play by focusing students to rely on their instincts. Students will be led through a 2-hour workshop featuring key exercises meant to surprise / delight their expectations. Key takeaways will be trusting themselves, painting reality through response, and reaction through hyper-listening in a fun and supportive environment. If you’re frustrated with your play, come see Xchel right away.
