Characters ‘R Us

Jonathan Pitts will facilitate this workshop, utilizing a variety of physical exercises for the improviser to immediately develop a wide range of characters. These exercises also include finding the character’s voice and exercises to incorporate a variety of characters in the same walking environment. We expect that each participant will get to play 10 – 20 characters in the course of the session, while also developing greater skills to develop characters in improvised scenes generally.

Jonathan’s teaching philosophy is to help every improviser become a more intuitive theatre artist and to face artistic challenges with creativity, braveness, openness, a sense of exploration and a sense of humor, and this workshop will lean into that.
