Workshop Details

From the individual to the group

Summary: Most of human pursuits can only be achieved within the context of a small or large group. The individual can evolve, develop, and prosper only when this happens together with other individuals. A theatrical performance is quintessentially a result of synergy, and its success or failure depends largely on the dynamics of the group that contributes to its creation. We will work on techniques that have been used for years in theater for different people to get to know each other and connect, developing trust and improving communication with each other as well as the ability to connect and collaborate.
