Workshop: The Protagonist Gets What They Want

Beyond point of view, discovering your character’s wants and goals can help create scenes navigate memorable moments without stalling or losing track of the narrative. Other performers are going to help or hinder along the way. But who is the protagonist, and will they like what they said they wanted?

Especially helpful for creating characters with fortitude without having to be the most extroverted performer on stage. Part of the HEIST Takes Improv series

Suitable for: Improvisors with experience creating and performing characters | Duration: 90 minutes | Participants: 20 performers each (in-person and virtual)
