Event Details

Take away the pressure of having to think up the entire premise of your scene before you initiate. That's not improv. That's invention. Improv is about cooperation and discovery.


Abandon the FLAME THROWER METHOD of starting a scene. Learn the TWO STICKS RUBBING TOGETHER METHOD to light the fire of scene and character discovery.


With a focus on group mind, small thankless moves, you'll learn to create and sustain strong, smart, funny scenes. Walk the plotless path. "We don't serve plot, plot serves us." Students learn to play "WHO" and "WHERE" so "WHAT" simply appears. Weekly meditations and group mind exercises will help you realize that --everything that happens in improv is either an obstacle or an opportunity. The choice is yours.


Jump and the net will appear.
