Radical Agreement and Playing Positively with Ray Simeon
Get deeper into scenes by saying yes to ideas! By agreeing more in scenes you and your scene partner will discover more fun together and push past the fear of the unknown.
Find the Power in saying YES and being positive! Get away from conflict to find purpose or a character deal and instead say YES to that idea, feeling, power dynamic, status and much more to launch your scenes in an amazing positive direction!
This workshop will help you identify what mirco- “no’s” are stopping you from getting on the same page with your scene partner instantly and getting to the fun faster. We will work on saying yes, having a premise in our initiations that doesn’t insinuate conflict, and respond radically with YES each time something is offered.
