Have you ever wondered why most of us play “normal” or “neutral” characters most of the time? Do you have the urge to play characters which are bigger than life and /or are very different from you? Are you struggling with playing these kinds of characters in a believable way?
Often when improvisers make the choice of playing an extreme character on stage, two main things happen: Firstly, they struggle between playing that character consistently and believably while keeping the scene going. And secondly, the scene will usually revolve around them and how “extreme” they are. In this session, you will develop the ability to play those characters in a believable and focused way, as well as use these characters to tell beautiful stories in various contexts and situations.
Min. participants 6, max. participants 12. If we have to cancel the event due to low numbers, we will do this with 24 hours notice.
