Some of the most beautiful and intense sessions I have had have been when I was playing someone else. Role play is a way to step away from our mundane self into the guise of another person.  Taking on the role of someone or something else can be very empowering and free us from restricting thought-patterns and act as a tool to ask for what we do not dare to when we are ourselves.

For many, one obstacle to role play is “performance anxiety”, the feeling that one will not have enough ideas, be able to stay in role or freeze up in the middle of everything. In this workshop we will focus on how to get into role, leaving behind any expectations of producing concrete results or scenarios. Freeing ourselves from this expectation is what allows us to be creative and have fun while getting in touch with still unknown sides of ourselves.

Bring costumes and props that inspire you!
