About the Workshop
In this workshop we are going to learn and practice 3 of Michelle’s FAVORITE openings that all foster fun character work, ensemble work, and practicing listening with our whole bodies. Flocking, The Documentary and The Confession will allow us to strengthen many improv muscles including but not limited to having fun, being funny, and supporting each other as we then pull inspiration from what is created up top to build and say yes to worlds we love playing in.
