Training Camp: Weekend Warrior Improv Intensive (NOLA) - Jan 7 - Jan 8 (9am-4pm)
TNM’s Training Camp Weekend Warrior program brings the rigor and focus of our popular summer Intensive to a two-day, round-the-clock advanced improv workshop where you will learn and practice for 6 hours a day and perform a killer show in front of a paying audience both nights. Each day’s session will hone in on one aspect of improv, with a rotating schedule of topics throughout the year.
January's session will include "And Like a Samurai" and "Heighten or Die" where we will focus on listening like a champion, making strong decisions at the top of our scenes, and following our patterns and game to new dimensions of discovery and fun.
Attendees of TNM’s Training Camp will get:
- 6 hours a day of improv exercises and scenework
- Daily specific feedback on you and your progress during the camp
- A performance every night of camp in front of an excited, supportive audience
- AND, you’ll make a great new group of badass friends
A NEW KIND OF WORKOUT
Training Camp is for any improvisor with the heart and drive of an athlete. We seek the type of performer who never stops pushing, who watches shows with an eye for every detail or move, who craves more practice, more stage time, and more challenge. If this sounds like you, we invite you to Training Camp. By the time you return to your home troupe, you'll be a finely-tuned improv athlete with the skills needed to take your game to the next level.
We believe that you learn best by doing. Training Camp takes the rigorous TNM curriculum – heavy on character, game, patterns, and devices – and packs it into an improv bootcamp designed to give participants an exceptional (almost absurd) amount of scene work.
GET STAGE TIME
We believe that you need more time in front of real audiences. Rather than waiting for one recital show at the end of the weekend, Training Camp requires participants to perform both nights in front of paying audiences.
We believe that an improv intensive should be affordable. Training Camp - with its 12 hours of improv class, nightly performances, and access to the best TNM faculty from ATX & Nola - costs less than $200.
