Lead By: The Raving Jaynes – Amy Larimer and Jamie Graham
Date and Time: Saturday, September 21, 10AM-1PM
Location: Bricolage Production Company
The use of the body is an essential part of improv. Strong physical choices can clarify characters, focus the mind, and bring energy and direction to scenes. Although improvisers know that physicality is important, there is often little time to work individually on expanding physical range. This class will offer exercises that will help performers commit to heightened ways of moving, develop more physical clarity and gain confidence. Performers will receive individual feedback and specific techniques for harnessing their physical potential. We will sweat, breathe, twist and shout, so wear comfortable clothing that you can move in and be prepared to go barefoot! ravingjaynes.com
