Surveys about fears commonly show stage fright at the top of the list, in some cases even more than the fear of death. This emotion, usually seen as negative and unpleasant is there for a reason. How can we get to know it? Can we embrace it? Can we be friends with it? and most importantly, can we learn how to use it?
This workshop was created by Daniel Orrantia for MITICO -Impro Fest- Italy. It explores the idea that fear is a natural emotion that “visits” us to help us more than to block o paralyse us. The aim is to recognize and “educate” your fear so it will behave as your friend ! For this we will be taking ideas mentioned by Viola Spolin and other fantastic theatre teachers.
