Every participant is required to bring one text of their own writing, written in any language or in many languages. It is recommended to know this text by heart. We will be performing our individual texts using different voices, tones, and expressing different emotions. This workshop will include different improv exercises which will allow us to experience and perform the same text in different ways. Participants may also be asked to read other’s texts. It is recommended to have our texts on paper and not on our phones.
