Jaybird O’Berski brings twenty-five years experience as an actor and director to this workshop specifically for improv performers. You’ll practice playing deeply and truthfully rather than going for the big funny. The foundations of Stanislavsky’s action-based ideas and contemporary practitioners (e.g. Keith Johnstone, Mick Napier, TJ & Dave) will be folded into scene work and side-coached as you play.
