Know Your Status (Online)

Know Your Status. This is a three-hour workshop with master improviser David Razowsky! Your status in a scene helps define your point of view. Changes in status keep your scenes alive. Status is the basis of character work. It’s part of the engine that drives your point of view and pushes against your partner’s point of view. Identify your status, either high or low, and recognize when it shifts. Embrace it and fully commit to your new status. Come join us and see why actors have called this methodology “freeing,” “exhilarating,” “inspiring,” and “artistically refreshing.”
