Workshop 1: Creating character and point of view

Saturday 9th September from 10am-5pm - venue TBC, will be city centre Norwich

When you are on stage, who are you? How do you make choices about and become the character you are playing? How can you create a character with a point of view and physicality that’s very different from your own, but still have it feel real and natural?

I have been exploring improvisation techniques for character and point of view for well over a decade, collecting methods from a wide range of improvisation theatres and companies from both the US and UK, and developing my own approaches to character work which recognise that different kinds of performers are more comfortable with different approaches to ‘not being themselves’ on stage.

When you are performing and are truly ‘in character’ the experience becomes easy as you don’t have to ‘think’ what your character would do next or how they would say something. It just happens! The aim of the workshop is give you a palette of ways to create instantly recognisable characters - from very realistic to the absurd and everything in between.

Suitable for anyone with improvisation or other performance experience, this workshop is useful for actors - both professional and amateur - and improvisers alike.
