This three-hour workshop led by teaching artist, Eric Schildge,  is an exploration of the vocal, physical, and rhetorical elements of the art of persuasion.  Participants will use mindfulness techniques, improvisational exercises, and short scene work to explore how individuals leverage their relationships, reputations, and status to influence one another. 

Open to community members and theatre practitioners, no experience necessary, please wear comfortable clothing and bring a bottle of water.
