This is David Razowsky’s first Australian full day workshop in over 2 years, focused on the art of surprise and getting specific, built on David’s foundational improvisation philosophy of present awareness to create compelling, smart, truthful and surprising scenes.
The Art of Surprise
Do you dare to just connect? Are you courageous enough to just let the relationship start then decide the details later…when you need to! Holding back surprises the audience…because it surprises YOU!
Open up your scenes by adding the specifics to your world, adding flavors and exotic elements to your scenic menu. Play your scenes like a great jazz musician riffing on a jazz standard! Your mind will soar, your characters will be exciting to play, and your scenes will have a vibrancy that you never imagined.
10am to 1pm on Sunday 18 August 2019
1:30pm to 4:30pm on Sunday 18 August 2019
The exact location will be confirmed closer to the workshop, but it will be in the inner west of Sydney, between Glebe and Erskineville.
Requirements: At a minimum you must have some minimal previous improv or acting experience, either a level or two of improv or acting classes or on stage experience. David’s workshops are designed to work well for those with minimal experience through to those with many decades of professional improv and acting experience.
