Jeff Wirth: The Co-Creative Audience

Audiences are no longer satisfied with observing. They want to engage, to explore, to impact. This workshop offers practical, field-tested techniques to engage audiences as co-creators in the interpretive process. Learn how to establish instant rapport, endow collaborative roles, integrate improvisation with interpretive material, and transform passive spectators into co-creative spect-actors.
