Anatasha Blakely | Breakout Session
"The Improv Brain"
About this session: What fuels your creative brain? This workshop breaks down improv into measurable skills for actors, directors and writers. Become more open, present and vulnerable. We will dare you to face danger head on, challenge your assumptions about theatre (and your place in it), and help you get out of your head so you can give your creativity a clear path.
