Workshop: Silent Partner

A narrative improvisational exploration of silence to affect scene pacing and focus. Beyond dramatic stories, we’ll treat silence like another scene partner, as well as sitting in silence with our reactions and interactions

Especially helpful for working in non-verbal spaces, working online (connections, lag, etc.), and across language confidence. This is a focused, skill drilldown in talking less (or more, if you’re the quiet one) for more fulsome communication

Suitable for: Improvisors with workshop, jam, or stage experience | Duration: 90 minutes | Participants: 20 performers each (in-person and virtual)
