Humans are naturally defensive. We can’t help it. Couple that with being watched by a crowd of people and you can’t help but separate and put up walls. “Yes, And” sounds so easy, but why is it so hard? In this workshop, we’ll use a few simple techniques that will help you drop your guard and focus on truly having fun with your scene partners.
