THE CREATOR'S PLAYGROUND
Feeling creatively stuck? This physical performance playground is an on your feet class designed to help you create new possibilities from a physical, intuitive place. Students will leave with techniques for easy writing of texts and the creation of new movement. Free your creative spirit and expand creative possibilities in body, voice and content.
WHAT YOU WANT TO SAY:
A CLASS FOR TEXT, VOICE, AND PERSONA
Everyone’s got something to say, this class is designed to tease that out. What do you want to say? How do you say it? This class is designed for folks who want to develop and hone skills specifically around generating and performing their own texts. We will focus on skills to create performance in live time, working from an embodied place, vocal delivery and developing persona through movement.
CONNECTED IMPROV SCENE CLASS
In this class, we will explore emotional investment and its importance in creating rich, fun scenes. Students will work on making strong emotional connections with their scene partners, while focusing on playing in and truly caring about the environment they have created together. Also, students will set personal goals at the beginning of class, and we will work together to help them reach those goals.
If you've already had improv training and are looking to advance your scene work then Improv 201 is for you. Improv 201 takes your improv skills to the next level as you learn how to work together as an ensemble.
We will focus on Long form improv scene creation, editing scenes with the montage structure, finding the game of a scene, third person entrances, callbacks, and arcs and threads of scenes.
