"Collective Creation & Direction" *Ages 16 and Up* February 22 from 1:00 to 4:00 This workshop will focus on the basic components of collective creation and direction including: creation from play, scene building exercises, ensemble creation, and finding your truth. This internal experience will be used to create a connection with an audience - one rooted in presence and emotional honesty - in order to reveal the heart of the clown.
