Power Emotional Commitment: For most improvisers, the emotional well contains two choices…angry and horny. Why?..because they are easy. This workshop focuses on the simple and yet sometimes terrifying act of truly committing during an improv scene. Too often improvisers don’t give themselves completely over to the moment for fear that it might hold them back from exploration, or discovery when in fact it is only by fully committing to the unknown that you can completely free yourself in the scene. This workshop will help you focus on the scene’s most simple elements, and be more “in the moment” than you’ve ever been before. And once you’re truly in the moment…nothing else really matters.
