Description

Dive into Genres and Styles with Tony Beeman the Co-Artistic Associate at Unexpected Productions.
Styles and genres can change the way we improvise. This class will explore how to break a style down and allow it to change the way you perform, both at an individual level, and at a show level. We explore theatrical, literary and film genres, and delve into ways that we can bring the elements of those styles to the stage. And this quarter, we will dive into playwright Tennessee Williams, as well as exploring several Science Fiction styles. Students are assigned weekly homework. Upon completion, students should expect to be able to deconstruct a style and understand how to apply it to improvisation. Other topics include Story vs Plot, Pastiche vs Parody, Methods of Research, Common Issues Adapting Non-Theatrical Styles, Understanding Your Own Personal Style and Troubleshooting Common Pitfalls.

Tony Beeman is Co-Artistic Associate at Unexpected Productions and has studied and been involved performing in, providing dramaturgy for, or directing over fifty styles-based improvised shows. His favorites include Edward Albee, Ray Bradbury, Dystopian Sci-Fi, David Lynch, Film Noir, Edgar Allen Poe, and Tennessee Williams. For several seasons at Unexpected Productions, he has played The Ghosts in A(n Improvised) Christmas Carol, playing two different styles every night!
