Ann Randolph • Friday Afternoon
LOCATION: SUITE 300E
To keep deepening their craft and range as therapists—and grow as creative human beings—clinicians need to find sources of inspiration outside the therapeutic arena. This workshop is an opportunity to use improvisational theater techniques to explore the multiplicity of characters and emotions that live within you but have yet to enliven your creative being. In addition, Ann will perform excerpts from her previous solo shows.
Using improv theater exercises that bring your creativity to the surface, you’ll:
- Get in touch with your body rather than fight what it’s telling you
- Learn warm-up exercises to loosen up and stop censoring yourself
- Explore how “playing” an improv character that’s not “you” can give you entry into emotions that normally stay below the surface
- Allow yourself to tune into your creative potential by acting out your life’s themes
