Can you imagine a character inspired by glass? How would it be? Which physical and psychological characteristics would it have? What would its name be? What would it do for a living?
In this class, we are going to dig deeper beyond the surface of our characters and you will discover a new, fun, and poetic way of improvising from a different perspective. Fire, guitar, sea, pumpkin… any element or object will serve as inspiration to become a different person with its particularities, strengths, and flaws.
When someone passes away, we tend to remember their good traits and qualities. We recall shared anecdotes and say good things about them. The way we remember them is the way they are going to be remembered by the rest.
So, how was this person’s life? How did it affect ours? What do we want to keep? What do we want to forget?
