Kristen Schier - Making Mischief (District Improv Festival Workshop)
In this workshop we borrow from the world of childhood, mischief and clown to make the idea of collaboration and "yes and" feel more dangerous. We will learn to exploit a sense of complicity with yourself, your scene partner and the audience for performance. The exercises in the workshop will call upon your a sense of play, risk and vulnerability all while encouraging you to trust the power and titillation found in your inner criminal.
