#SWIMP20: If I'm being honest (workshop)
About the workshop
Come with Sara & Kaisa on a journey of connections, we will learn to share our stories and create opportunities not only to connect with our fellow cast members, but the audience as well. In this workshop we will ask you to jump into the deep end with us, exploring truth and vulnerability, creating rich stories that come from within. Through this we will create a safe space to push the boundaries and find beautiful relationships between ourselves and our stage performance. Expect to work on: storytelling, depth of relationships within scenes and honest character work.
