Character Development for Actors: Embracing Deep Emotion with Cycerli Ash
This two-evening workshop will focus on deepening emotional expression in the development of a character. Participants will learn to understand the "why" behind a character's emotions and work to find the joy, love, anger, and peace in the work. We’ll create a space that allows for bold self expression and risk taking, without having to worry about the outcome. Suitable for all skill levels!
