Ensemble Storytelling

This workshops explores how to create a story/play/movie that centers around multiple people rather than a single main character. Topics include how-to smoothly and realistically improvise backstories, maintain balance and focus, create groups for multiple stories lines, and have a good time with what could easily be a big ol’ mess!
