Event Details

MONDAY September 5th

Organic Improv
Todd Stashwick of The Doubtful Guests and  The Riches (Los Angeles)
1pm - 5pm
@ The Institution Theater, 3708 Woodbury Drive

Organic Improvisation is about exploring the interface between players, honing the player into a heightened state of receptivity, called “predator mind.” Grounding the work in physicality puts the character and environment into the body, to get the player out of their head. The class is a synthesis of clown exercises and physical group work with an emphasis on experimentation and theatricality. Dress to move!

TODD STASHWICK graduated from Illinois State University Theater Dept. in 1990. A Chicago native, he has trained at both The Second City . He was hired as a performer to the Second City Chicago, where he toured, taught and wrote shows.
