Improvisation Techniques

This is a course from a previous year. View the current courses

Great art comes from using oneself. If theatre is a way of knowing oneself, improvisation energizes that process. This course is for actors who are willing to personalize, place their characters in dangerous situations, play strong objectives, and then move on—a conscious way to reach the unconscious. We will approach the material experimentally in a laboratory setting twice a week. Students must be willing to act with and without text. This class meets twice a week.
