In the business world, conflict is a natural part of the pursuit of excellent. But it can leave a sour aftertaste. We will present three one-hour workshops aimed at turning enemies into allies. This is a hands on workshop that uses classic theatre games to bond a team together using conflict as the starting point for collaborations that will last the test of time. Class will include improvisation, trust exercises, non-vocal communication and Viewpoints exercises that emphasizes collective storytelling. Classes will be limited to 30 and will take place either on three consecutive days or once a week for three weeks. Fee: $200 per hour. Burning Coal will work with company to modify the class to fit its specific needs.
"The summer course was challenging and exciting. I will certainly attend again as soon as time allows! My growth as an actor and as a director is immeasurable thanks to Burning Coals unique opportunities."
–Robyne Parrish, Artistic Director/Gilbert Theatre (Fayetteville)
