Description

Working with Musicians: Breaking the Rules and Raising Your Game with T.J. Mannix (NYC)

This workshop brings musicians and improvisors together to break the traditional barrier between "actor" and "accompanist". What happens when you empower your musicians to step in and drive a scene. Break the rules of song structure and free your musicians to provide sound effects, underscoring, and even surprise themselves. Musicians are artists, and if we invite them to do more than accompany, we can inspire each other to do ridiculously creative things on stage.

As Musical Improvisors, we strive to have strong musicality. During this workshop, improvisors will be pushed to really listen to the music and sound and let it change their scenes and choices. Every improvisor and musician can be a cast member, pushing the boundaries of musical improv as we know it.
