Intimacy: Deep Connection and Clear Consent
with Megan Sherrod
Saturday, April 13, 4pm-6:30 pm
Connection and intimacy onstage are so important for improv. Through them, we convey deeper relationships, increase stakes, and ground scenes. In this workshop, we’ll focus on skills for creating both subtle and overt intimacy, saying “yes” and “no” to intimacy offers, and empowering players to create safe spaces for themselves and others.
