“Auditing” a workshop means you simply observe / take notes. You must remain seated and should not participate in any of the exercises.
Join us if you’ve ever wondered how two or three actors can play out a 40-minute set in one continuous location. Discover how awareness and “present-ness” keeps a scene going while you were thinking it was “finished.” By being mindful and aware you can keep playing a scene indefinitely, one that’s intriguing, full and exciting…and that’s a good thing! A scene only ends when you think it does. So stop thinking, start feeling and keep going!
