Hey, yo! Is that body of yours just a taxi that transports your witty brain around? Then you’re missing a trick!
The body is our primary communication tool: a transmitter and receiver. Our physicality directly affects both the way we feel and are perceived. But we tend to get stuck in habitual patterns, a bit like having a piano and only playing 5 of the notes. By developing body awareness we can access a whole symphony of thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
This session will help you expand your character range and choices, as well as open your awareness to how you can use your physicality to change your mind, onstage and off.
So why just be a talking head, when you’ve got so much more to play with? As Baz Luhrmann says ‘Enjoy your body, use it every way you can. Don’t be afraid of it, or what other people think of it. It’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own’. So let’s play…
Sunday 19th November from 2pm-5pm - George Carver Court, Northfields, Norwich
Great improv has the power to make us both laugh and cry.
This is always a result of the CONNECTION between players. Interesting scenes are not about a hilarious anecdote, they are about this specific relationship in this specific moment.
We all bring something different to the stage and the millions of possibilities for a scene are crystallised into a unique circuit between ourself and our scene partner. When we slow down and pay attention to this circuit, our improv becomes exciting, raw and believable. It causes the audience to be affected by our work and allows us, as improvisers, to create authentic, electric and uniquely touching art.
