SIX-WEEK COURSE • IMPROV
We all have layers. Versions of ourselves that we only access based solely on our surroundings or our relationships. Accessing these different parts of ourselves can provide greater texture and specificity to help an audience identify with the spontaneous moment happening upon the stage. The focus of this course is to encourage students to develop all of their past experiences and absorbed cultural knowledge into a rich well of characters for their improvised scenework. Making use of our external world, sense memories, knowledge of various cultural archetypes, physicalities, catchphrases, and vocal capabilities will help us to open the floodgates and release all the many yous out of you.
