Skills Lab:  Characters-  Emotional point of view and justification

This Lab will focus on helping you create more grounded and three dimensional characters by playing with an emotional point of view. You will practice justifying character traits, content and environments thru the emotional point of view of your characters.

"How you do, what you do, reveals who you are" ~ Joe Bill


Skills Lab is a deep dive into a topic pulled directly from the PHIT curriculum.  Led by one of our instructors, participants start with a fun warm-up, engage in select exercises followed by open practice working on games or scenes with a specific focus around the topic of the Lab.

Part targeted workout, part practice group, Labs are open to anyone with some level 101 experience and above. It is strongly recommended for your own benefit that you have some familiarity with any Skills Lab topic as instructors provide targeted coaching and feedback around that topic to help you gain more mastery applying it in performance.


Skills Labs are *not intended* for people with ZERO improv experience.


Please check your schedule carefully before you register. All sales are final. There are no refunds, exchanges, or credits.
