@HONIGFABRIK, Industriestraße 125, 21107 Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg
Building strong characters starts the moment your foot hits the floor, not the moment you start "thinking." This workshop will focus on the organic unfolding of a character based on that first step. More being…less thinking! Hone your ability to identify the game of a scene and blow it out to the Nth degree. All exercises are set to identify premise, celebrate a central game, and attack it as an ensemble. Give your gameplay the torque it needs and take this workshop.

Learn how to match energies and use its momentum to make discoveries to super charge your scenes, make bold moves with big stakes and high energy, say "yes" in huge ways with more than just words, and attack the stage with total agreement and zero fear. Get out of your brain and into the scene. All lessons are designed to create an immediate sense of trust, synergy and agreement. Surprise and shock yourself and take this workshop!
