SESSION 4: Saturday 10:40-12:10

Seducing Your Character

Your character wants you, badly. They just don't know it yet. Actors come ready to take over, nail the performance and change the room. You'll perform pieces live and discover how to seduce every character you take on (quickly and completely). The pieces are original, the blood is real and none of the kisses are faked.
