Group Heart, the Power of Observation & the Art of Exquisite Listening with Lyndsay Hailey
Crammed into one hot workshop, lean on the power of observation, exquisite listening, and group heart to take the pressure off yourself to be funny. By observing and hearing the heart of your ensemble and your external reality in a profound way you unlock brilliant comedic choices that you and the audience never see coming.
This workshop begins with organic group work, then dives deep into listening and observation techniques, and culminates in the application of these new methods through two-person scenes. Create limitless freedom in your play by trusting, seeing, hearing, and feeling the deeper choice, the unseen.
