Level up your character work

Workshop for intermediate to advanced improvisers.

What is the best method to hold on a character? To play it, as much as possible. To play with it, in order to feel it.

In this meta-workshop, you will not work on your characters, but you will take a full-length workshop in one of your characters. The focus will be on holding on the realism of your chosen character, through the entirety of the workshop. Your pirate, old neighbor or little kid will take an improv workshop, and the feedbacks will not only be given during the exercises, but for the complete length of your presence there, from your first step in the room to your last step out.

Stop working on the theory of your characters, but work IN character!

Gael is one of the best character improvisers I’ve ever seen. His ability to inhabit a different persona and morph his physicality borders on the supernatural. How so many thousands of people live inside one beautiful French soul is beyond me.
