HANG 10 w/ Dan Desalva! Improv Workshop


3-5pm Saturday September 16th @ Imbibe

108 Henderson St, Chapel Hill, NC 27514

Emotional Negotiation: Have you ever wondered how can you can grow your character's emotions from an authentic place? In this workshop, we'll be exploring where improvisors' emotions and their characters' emotions intersect. We'll look to ourselves as a source for inspiration while still allowing our characters permission to discover.
