The mantra of improv is to always provide information. It's easy to lose sight of when too much information quickly becomes noise. In this workshop we will pause at crucial points to take stock of where we are in a scene and what we can do with it. If you've ever been in a long form set that's gone quickly to FuckWorld (tm) from the best of intentions, this workshop could help you.
Guest Workshop: Mona Thompson & Shara Tonn
Clowning | Tuesday, June 20 | 7-9PM | $40
The art of clowning is all about using your entire body to convey meaning. If you are an improviser who feels disconnected from your body, this workshop will teach you ways to bridge that gap in your performance.
