Scenes From The Heart with Amy Angelilli
July 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm$30
This workshop, or as we like to call it, PLAYshop, is designed for the experienced improviser. So if you have taken an improv class or 2 before and would like to dip your feet in a little further, join us in the MOVE Studio at JUMP for Scenes from the Heart: Emotionally Committing to Scene Work.
Real connections make for real (good) improv. So, why is it that as improvisers we sometimes take the stage and feel the need to fill every quiet space with things that don’t matter? This workshop will approach scene work from the perspective that real feelings drive real connections. From this place of honesty, we can have rich scenes that are about people and relationships. And, with this approach, we’ll never be at a loss for what to do next in a scene because our emotional commitment will trigger the natural response for any character. Let’s practice doing what a real person would do … caution: real feelings and real connections just might happen!
