Gender Rollercoaster with Betse Green
Sunday, November 27, 2016, 1230PM - 330PM : $65
Get ready to take a journey into the world of the opposite male/female persona. With an emphasis on finding real instead of our typical improv stereotypes we will break free of the binds they create. This workshop will hone your skills through exercises and play to develop your skills playing the opposite gender as well as gain a better understanding of your own gender. Be prepared to hone your skills and find the joy in your improv by allowing yourself to be vulnerable. Draw strong, meaningful connections to take your scene work to the next level creating strong, grounded characters that naturally lead to compelling scene work.
