Improv 201 "scenework"
Make scenework work for you. The possibilities are endless when you learn what makes an engaging improvised scene. The 2 person scene is the cornerstone of any short or long form performance. Building on your previous improv skills, you will develop structure to a scene by finding patterns, objectives, and content. This class ends with a group performance of short form games.
Dates: Mondays, 7:00pm - 9:30pm, July 10 - August 28
August 17, 7-10pm
Instructor: Amey Goerlich, M.I. Westside Comedy LA, UCB NY
See how you can strip down the game of the scene to its bare bones and broaden its possibilities. Take the mystery out of what ‘the funny’ of the scene is and know what it is. With these game skills you’ll start to make magical connections that help you create the ultimate ensemble improv piece.
Saturday, June 24
Have you ever felt judged for the style of improv you do? Felt that weird, artificial divide between shortform and longform? In this time of social and political division, it’s more important than ever for us, as improvisers, to bridge that gulf, to cross that divide. In this workshop, we’ll look at shortform tools that can be applied to improve longform… longform concepts that can be applied to improve shortform… and performance structures that can be used in either style of show. It’s time to make peace with one another – for the future of our community, our nation, our world… our improv.
Come to the table.
