    Breathing, Awareness & Joy

    Breathing, Awareness and Joy is veteran acting teacher Carol Fox Prescott’s brilliant and inspiring process of performance instruction, which we have the good fortune to experience online via zoom. Carol creates an inviting atmosphere for newcomers and veteran actors alike. Her goal is to help us enhance our own experience of joy in everyday life and in interaction with others, learning to open ourselves to our own expressive abilities. The workshop will include Carol’s unique experiential exercises, the performance of short monologues and scenes, and processes designed to be fun, expansive and instructive about the art of acting…and living.

    Weekly, Tuesdays at 7pm, except for the second Tuesday of each month
