Improvisation for Theatre Makers
Instructor: Resident Playwright Alum Tania Richard
Whether you're a playwright, actor, live lit storyteller, or director "it's all about story." Participants will learn the basics of improvisation in order to bring spontaneity, creativity, and humor to their work. An emphasis on story structure, finding the game in a scene, and emotional point of view will be examined through ensemble-building games and exercises. Dress to move.
