Tiana Hogben: You Did WHAT?!
Your scene partner’s words are gold. Make them even shinier with how you decide to react. Listening and reacting are the foundations of quality scene work.
This workshop teaches you how to add weight in your responses to your scene partners through strong emotional reactions. Emotions are a beautiful thing, they can solidify a Point of View, heighten games and ground your character. Learn to care about everything your scene partner has to say – if you care, the audience will care too!
If you sometimes find yourself stuck in a scene, playing apathetic characters or just want to sharpen your listening and reacting skills then this is the workshop for you!
