Physicality in Improv with Asaf Ronen
Learn what blocks you from throwing yourself more into your body and your environment when you improvise. By freeing up the body, students will discover new characters, different approaches to creating a relationship onstage, and tools to add variety to their scene work. Minimize the reliance on dialogue and learn how to communicate solely through physical nuance using techniques that incorporate elements of clowning, mime, and environmental work into your improvisation.
