Event description

Description

Day 1- Agreement & Confidence- We focus on the fundamental principle of improv, "yes, and...", as well as show that through listening, and agreement, together we can build something better than we could individually. In addition, we will teach some short form games like "Who's Line Is It Anyway?"

Day 2- Character & Emotion- We'll jump into how to create real characters, outside of ourselves, with funny points of view, and then move onto the importance of adding emotion to make them fully fleshed out characters.

Day 3- Scene & Object Work- To make a scene feel real onstage, we need to live in the world we create. The objects we hold, and the stage picture we present must feel real to the audience. For this week, we will teach tools& habits to make sure our stage picture is engaging, and authentic.

Day 4- Longform & The Montage- There are two types of improv. Short form, which are the "Whose Line?" style games, and long form, which is an improvised play. We'll dive into how to improvise long form scenes, and teach the Montage, which is a series of longform scenes that interconnect. These are tools sketch writers for tv, and screen have used for years as inspiration.

Day 5- Show Run- To end the class session, we'll rerun the ideas we've worked on all week, and do a run through of our performance later that night. The focus will be to get us confident, and ready to put on a killer show to our friends, and family!
