As improvisers, one of our ongoing and most challenging tasks is to create wheres and action. Otherwise, we just stand there and talk, and our ability to portray the full range of human experience is severely limited. Remember, we can actually make an audience see things and places that aren't there on stage, if only we have the skills and commitment to make it happen. It is the truly magical part of improvisation!

In this course, we’ll play and learn techniques which I’ve developed through 30 years of performing and teaching improvisational theatre. These techniques, used together, give you all the skills you need to create dynamic environments in any improv format.

In this class, we’ll learn:

  • How to do space object (mime work).
  • How to say things out loud about the places we’re at, so our fellow improvisers and the audience see them too!
  • How to move through locations (riding horses, running, car chases, etc.).
  • How to create an “unbroken chain of information” so that we can do even very complicated actions and still be clear.
  • How to activate our “seeing” rather than our thinking, so that we can continuously notice our environments – the places where the scenes and stories are happening.
  • How to SLOW DOWN, which makes everything possible.
  • How to juggle what I call the “Big Ying Yang” of improv – that we must be ready to simultaneously lead and follow when we’re improvising!

~ BE ANYWHERE AND EVERYWHERE! DO ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING!
