Putting it All Together, A Week-long Impro Intensive
David Razowsky has been traveling all over the world working with actors on a very specific type of impro: Mindful, fully-aware, “Present Presence” work. Razowsky’s focus creates real scenes in real time, organic discoveries, surprising turns, and satisfying true moments.
Over the course of 5 days, participants in Putting it All Together will focus on:
- Recognizing and creating from a strong “point of view.”
- The creative certainty that comes with confident heightening, and how that in itself creates strong characters and relationships.
- “Owning” the stage and your place in it.
- Creating a sense of “where” without thinking, planning, worrying, or inventing.
- Learning to surrender emotional elements of the scene in order to build honest and real scenarios.
The actors “take-away” from Putting it All Together will be a toolbox full of confidence, where he or she can enter any stage, work with any other actor, and live in boundless full environments. Those who have worked with Razowsky know one thing: their work strengthens each time they sit in on one of his workshops. Just ask a veteran!
The week runs 10th to 14th September from 10.30am to 5pm. Maximum class size is 16 and often sell out, so book early to avoid disappointment.
