Defense Against the Dark Arts
Finding yourself in tight corners as an improvisor sometimes? Learn to turn a No into a Yes, a block into an offer. Together we will work on fighting fire with love.
Last Saturday Workshops!
The last Saturday of every month, we are offering a different improv workshop, each focusing on a different skill. Each one is $20 (unless otherwise noted), and runs from 3-5pm. Signing up is encouraged, but walk-ins (cash only please!) are welcome!
April 25 | From Ah-Ha to Ha-Ha | Teacher: Sean May
One of my favorite improv philosophies involves finding the truth with in the scene, within the choices you make. If you make a common truth connection with not only your scene partner, but with the AUDIENCE, then the reactions you receive (be it laughter or otherwise) will be so much more impactful and rewarding. This workshop will help you to make choices grounded in truths that can make even your craziest character choices that much more meaningful. And, as always, it will be FUN!
May 30 | Get Out of Your F****** Head! | Teacher: Cara Trautman | 1-4pm | $30
A three-hour workshop focused on quieting your mind, relieving anxiety, and learning how to relax on stage. This session will be centered less on performance and more on accessing simple tools and exercises to help you get the f*** out of your head!
June 27 | Improv as Chess | Teacher: James Quesada
Though improvisors are not looking to defeat each other, Improv and chess actually have a lot in common. In both worlds the possibilities along the way can feel overwhelming. Great chess players and improvisors alike make strong choices, develop patterns, recognize the significance of each others moves, and give their full attention to the game. This workshop will focus on scene initiations, finding and playing the game of the scene, and the relationship between the players. Also the use of chess analogies.
