Finding the Heart of the Scene

Gary Schwartz

This workshop uses four key Spolin Games to bring out the essence of the scene and makes improvising effortless and intuitive. This four-game progression launches you into scenes that incorporate true relationship (not cliché), deep listening, seeing and using the ‘Where’ and will help you treat your environment as a fellow player. Allow the Who, What and Where to work for you and make your improv more theatrical and satisfying.
