Welcome to "Elements of Longform Improvisation"! In this 3-day intensive course, you'll develop an appreciation for longform improvisation in its many forms, and some of the basic skills that go into doing it! Tim Orr, along with a small team of BATS coaches, will guide you through exercises and games that look at and work on:
- taking your time and paying attention
- narrative, especially establishing a strong foundation
- improvising in genres
- transitions between scenes
This class is for students in the Studio Level who have done scenework, and maybe even short-form performance (Harold, Freestyle, etc.) but have little or no long-form experience. A perfect way to get some serious long-form chops and familiarity, this class will qualify you to be considered for more advanced work as it will give you a grounding in the essential elements of Long-Form improvisation as BATS practices it.
