The two day Harold workshop will focus on giving gifts, strong choices, emotional connection, character-based games, utilizing environment to create rich scene work that players can organically discover game moves within. We also will explore eight different types of group game. We will also practice different styles and types of openings. This workshop is open to students that have a basic understanding of improvisational concepts as well as advanced Harold performers. The workshop will culminate in a showcase on Sunday.
