401: Intro to LongForm: the Harold
Students build off game-driven scene work explored in 301 to discover how If-Then patterns can be used to produce a rewarding long-form structure. One of the best known and most engaging formats, the Harold was developed by the legendary Del Close many years ago to explore connections between scenes, creating a rich world before the audiences' eyes. Using the Harold as a template, improvisers dive into key components shared by many long-forms such as openings, second beats, and group games. This gateway to long-form will help students focus on strengthening scenework and building ensemble while taking an important step in the journey towards IB's signature "All-Form" stye of play. Graduates of 401 can improvise a basic Harold and have command over game-driven scenework. Upon completion of 401, students are also eligible to enroll in the Advanced Harold elective.
