The workshop deals with several of the stock characters. Students will find a stock character that suits them but will also be encouraged to find a modern reference in order to understand the stock personality. Mask presentation techniques will be taught and then students will improvise a short scenario using various comic routines. Commedia improvisation is improvisation that circles a set plot line or theme.
Stephen La Frenie has been performing and teaching physical theatre for over 30 years. His training includes acting. He has also studied mime with Tony Montanaro and clown with Dean Gilmour.
