Description: When an improviser says “I was in my head up there…” They really mean they were in their LEFT brain on stage. And, what we want is to be in our RIGHT brain when we are improvising. Thinking v. Emotion. Discovery v. Invention. This day of exercises will get players to focus on present-tense moment-to-moment engagement, playing from their strong emotional core. Students will also learn techniques on gift giving and playing in POV or, point of view. Conduct/Content – PG 13
