Use Your Words Intensive

In this four-hour workshop, we'll explore using narration to enhance the characters, style, and connections in your scene work.

Narration is a lens for focusing in and out on moments and minutiae. Learn how to explode the descriptive time and space boundaries of your scenes, and dissect the details that meaningfully define the people that populate the world down to their atoms.

How can narration be most effective in a scene - and how can the scene, and improvisers in it, be most beneficially effected by the narration? By being intentional with how and why you say the things you say, bring the audience closer to the heart of your story.

One-Day Intensive (4 hrs):

  • Sunday June 16th, 2019 12pm-4pm
    Instructor: Nicole Malcolm
