SUNDAY, Sept 5
2pm - 4pm Will Luera - Free-Form Improvisation [the ImprovBoston style] - Hideout Classroom
This workshop explores the makings of the unique style of the ImprovBoston Mainstage. The format of our show follows the concept that every moment in a show can be deconstructed and can lead to another scene all while following the funny and where the show wants to take you. We'll review the tools that will enable to create a unique free-form performing experience every time you hit the stage. We will review ideas of listening to what the show wants, what can be funny, when are the best times to edit and how to edit the scene.
