These Folk Workshop: Connection and Playfulness in Storytelling
Saturday 29th Jan | 10:00 – 13:00
Improvising narrative can be hugely rewarding but also very challenging. It’s hard not to get in your head when you’re worrying about the story.
Using ensemble exercises and plenty of scenework, we will explore ways to stay connected to your scene partner, while keeping the story moving.
We will also look at how to stay playful when feeling stuck.
This will be a fun, robust workshop where we really dig into the nitty gritty of scene-work and connection.
This workshop is best suited to those who have done improv before and who have an interest in narrative or scenework.
