Play the Moment (Online)

Play the Moment. This is a three-hour online workshop with master improviser David Razowsky! A moment means a pause, a reflection between lines of dialogue. It gives you time to respond truthfully to what’s happening in the scene. It can also be an indication of a new beat. Recognize the power of playing a moment and allow yourself to feel the impact of silence.
