Is it possible to improvise without improvising?is creativity Always necessary to be good improvisers? During this workshop we’ll try to answer these questions exploring how to deal with improvisations. We Will try to perceive the research of profound realism, as a big mean of exploration of emotions and human relationships, from which we often tend to escape during improvisations. In a few words, we will explore how to stay on stage and to be honest at the same time. During the workshop, a format will be created to make a final performance, open to the public.
