Listening 2.0 W/ Rick Andrews

Listening 2.0 W/ Rick Andrews


Listening 2.0

Saturday 10/5 11AM-2pm

Listening in a scene goes beyond just hearing the words your scene partner said.  It's about taking in every small detail available to you: tone, body language, stage picture.  Good listeners put themselves in their scene partner's shoes to see the scene as they see it.  Our essential task as an improviser boils down to, "What do I think this other person thinks is true?"  In this workshop, we'll endeavor to do that really, really...really well.
