The Character Master Class

Creating rich and unique characters is one of our favorite elements of improv! We’d like to explore what kind of characters you have inside yourself and take an in depth look at how characters are created in the moment of a scene. Focus will be on discovering details, point of view, and physicality to allow for a framework where you can play more freely.
