Classes // Sessions // One-On-One // Class Focuses
We will be focusing on how to tell stories through improv. Together we will explore the establishment of characters and storylines that have a beginning, middle, and end. As a group, we will learn the art of "raising the stakes" and saying, "yes and..." to create exciting and original narratives.Very interactive and teaches vulnerability and trust.
During this course of Character Building, we will start from the ground level of creating characters. We will highlight the importance of becoming characters and learning to fully commit to being a chosen character. We will discover the simplicity of establishing intention and purpose within a scene and find ways to relate to other characters. We will then explore giving voice, perspective, and life to characters to find away from the beginning to the end of a scene.
