Examining Character: Playing children with Nora McLeese - Thursday, 29. August - 10:00 - 13:00h


About the Workshop:


Playing children: One of the most misused character types in improv is the child. In our attempt to connect with our inner child through playing adult make-believe, we seem to overcorrect and forget that children can be autonomous, intelligent, three-dimensional and fully-formed human beings who experience emotions and have opinions. This workshop will explore how we can play child characters of different ages and levels of independence.

She started improvising in youth theatre sports leagues and after a spell away from performing, she reconnected with improv in 2012 and hasn’t looked back since.
