Emotion is the glue to any improv scene. It’s the thing that will lead you to stronger scenes with great POV, characters and connection to your partner. Without it your scene will fall off the rails pretty fast. In this workshop, we will work on intense emotion in scenes. Having a strong emotion gets you out of your head and playing to the top of your abilities. You will also learn how emotion will keep you in the moment and help you follow your instincts more.
