Skills Lab: Status and relationships in scene work | 2-5-23 (11am-12:30pm) with Tara Gadomski


Skills Lab:  Status and relationships in scene work:

This Lab will focus on using body language, actions, and ways of speaking to help you practice recognizing and playing both high and low status characters. Keith Johnstone defines status as something one does, independent of the social status one has. Playing with status and status shifts helps bring energy to a scene and create opportunities for change, and humor, within a scene.
