Based on the work of buddhist nun Pema Chodron, this workshop is all about playing with our fears with a gentle and kind touch. Participants confront fears – general improv fears as well as their own, if they wish to share – via exercises, scene work, games, and an innovative feedback session round. Topics covered in this workshop:
- Stillness and Silence
- Emotional Vulnerability
- Breaking Through Feeling Judged
- Receiving and Giving Criticism
- Unlocked Places in Your Imagination
This workshop is designed to give players the opportunity to face their fears, find fun in shadowy places they often dare not go, and unlock wellsprings
of love and emotion rearing to escape.
