Sometimes you’re stuck and can’t move forward with your improv. These workshops explore the reasons why we get stuck and ways we can create new opportunities to begin scenes and move them forward with less effort. Character risks, game play, and story elements are explored–three critical areas that improvisers continually need to develop. Advice and struggles from improvisers within the local community are shared and will be used as starting points for each workshop. Exercises are also built off of student feedback and discussion as students are encouraged to bring their past show notes where they can be used as practical guides toward improvement. A great class for any improviser looking to renew their improv momentum. Sign up for one, two, or all three workshops.
Dates: Three Sundays: April 20, 27, and May 4
Where: HUGE Theater, 3037 Lyndale Ave S
