(Reno, NV). Mary Bennett will lead an Improvisational Acting workshop for ages 16 and up from January 21 February 18, 2014 from 5:30 PM to 7 PM as part of Brüka's Artist in The House Series. The focus of the workshop will be on the improviser as an actor and creator. We will use the base of improv games and ensemble work to dive into scene work and use improvisation techniques to create dynamic improv and storytelling in creation and performance. Bring water and comfortable, flexible clothing that you can move around in. The workshop is limited to 20 and must have a minimum of 6. The cost is $45 for five sessions if paid before January 21, 2014.
