Date & Time

Richer, Funnier, and Bolder

Charlotte Gittins

This is a workshop about making every word, and every silence, count.

Working with soundtracks, rhythms of language and theatrical staging, we’ll focus on telling stories that really matter, both to us and the audience. Even before they open their mouths, characters can speak volumes about power, chemistry and the lives they inhabit.

Improvisers are already articulate, witty and interesting, so talking is rarely a problem! However, by giving the words we say greater weight and space, we can create scenes that are infinitely richer, funnier, and bolder. Talk less. Say more.
