Karen Eleanor Wight

"Karen's understanding of movement and physicality
adds another dimension to improvisational comedy."

-- Jill Bernard, Twin Cities Improv Festival

- Are you playing multiple characters in a production, and want to delineate them physically?
- Have you been cast in a role that requires a strong physical trait?
- Are you directing a production, and would like to help your actors make more specific and theatrical choices?
- Are you producing an immersive theatre piece, and want to infuse more theatricality?
- Does your comedic piece need more physical comedy?

I’m available for private coaching for a minimum of 2 hours, or can be brought in to a rehearsal to guide a particular scene or actor.

Contact me directly for my rate and with any questions.
