"In this workshop we will combine multiple aspects of improvisation to make characters, scenes and stories bigger, stronger and more fun!
Physicality: by being physical on stage, we lift improv out of the “talking heads” syndrome and into exciting and theatrical worlds. By being physical, we engage both ourselves and our audience on a visceral level. How do we portray Violence, Friendship, Intimacy, Love, Lust?
Staging: in improv, we can actually make an audience see things and places that aren't there on stage, if only we have the skills and commitment to make it happen. Instead of standing onstage and talking, we have the opportunity and the challenge of portraying the full range of human experience.
Transitions: transitions (sometimes called “edits” or “scene cuts”), both within and between scenes, are one of the truly magical aspects of improvisation. We will look at the many ways that we can, as an ensemble, move from one part of scenes and stories into the next part, with the goal of making anything and everything possible. "
