Relationship Dynamic with Carla Cackowski
Duration: 1 class session
Looking at your scene partner and deciding right away that they’re the most important person in your character’s life is a great place to start from when thinking about “relationship” in improvisation. This workshop will help you make quick, specific choices about how well you know the other person so the audience understands why these characters are together. We’ll explore different “types” of relationships we’ve often seen in improv and discover new options to explore these characters in a dynamic way.
