Instant Characters: Building strong characters starts the moment your foot hits the floor, not the moment you start “thinking.” This workshop will focus on the organic unfolding of character based on that first step. Characters are richer, instantly fleshed out and exciting, all leading to playing people you’ve never inhabited, in scenes you’ve never before played. More being…less thinking!
