Ann Randolph, on Using Improv Techniques to Access Deep Emotion
It’s a simple exercise—imbue one part of the body with a feeling and explore it, just like an actor would. Stomp around the room with angry hips. Look at the world through the challenging eyes of a jaguar.
Improv actor, Ann Randolph, explains that this technique bypasses the mind and unfolds naturally into a whole body experience of the emotion in its fullness.
In this clip from her video session—part of our new webcast series Creativity in the Consulting Room—Ann shows how easily techniques like these can be incorporated into a therapy session.
