• Bridging the divide between the performer and the audience. 
• Our physical presence and how to arrive at a state of calm and openness to our audience. 
• How the actor’s focus can become the audience’s focus. 
• How to bring mischief into your play. Be BOLD in your play and how to FAIL with aplomb.
