What you'll learn in this improv class:

Forget about doing improv 'the right way'. It's time to shake things up and expand your notions of what's possible in an improv show.

This workshop is designed to aggressively expand the concept of improvised gameplay, scenework, and show formatting. First we’ll shake things up with short form games that play with contradictions, surrealism, mental juggling, and the inane. Then we’ll take an abnormal approach to scenework by creating ‘wormholes’ for characters to travel between worlds and exploring playful dissonance when parts of unlike scenes are forced to share the same space. Finally, we will talk about how to implement these concepts into innovative longform shows and set your troupe apart from all others.

Whether you’re looking to shake yourself out of a rut or you’re hungry for new tools and ideas on how to keep improv fresh and challenging, you’ll walk away from this workshop feeling inspired about what’s next for you in improv.


Level 3: Character, or permission from the Education Director
