This is a fully fun and participatory workshop about finding creative ways to unleash all the characters that live inside of you. Using a variety of techniques and exercises we will explore how to find your inner Meryl Streep, Daniel Day-Lewis or Toni Collette. Voice, worldview, tensions and facemask will be explored. Some exercises will be good for your improvisational lessons and others will be for the acting classes. There will be a handout to help create history and depth for characters.
