Foundation 5 uses all skills in F1-4 to build longer, sustained stories in rich varied worlds which come alive as you create them with your improv partners.

In this focus on narrative, improvisers will learn:

  • The basic structure of traditional narrative and narrative devices.
  • How to identify and create the beginning, middle, and end of a longer story so it feels satisfying and cohesive.
  • Identifying the protagonist, raising the stakes, the circle of possibilities, leaning into consequences and supporting a fleshed out improvised reality in which to create a world with its own logic and consistency. Students will also explore the concepts through the specific lens of genre and start to tell stories in different styles.

All of these skills contribute to improvising rich stories that can cover all tones, from comedy to tragedy and everything in between.

At the end of F5, the coach will make a recommendation for each student about their next step— repeating F5, going to the Improv Gym to hone specific skills, or moving to F6: Performance.
