WORKSHOP: The Game of the Scene with Emily Schmidt

Sunday April 12 3-5PM, $40
At HUGE Theater, 3037 Lyndale Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55408
This workshop will focus on discovering and playing the “game of the scene” through grounded, two-person scenework — often, the game is there, waiting to be played, and we miss it! We’ll also explore ways to make group scenes simpler and more fun using the concept of “game.” Whether you’ve taken a workshop from me in the past or not, you can expect to learn new skills and hone old ones. Simplify and ground your scenes to take them to new heights!Emily Schmidt has been improvising for over ten years in Minneapolis, New York and Los Angeles. She currently lives in LA, where she is on an Upright Citizens Brigade Mess Hall team. They perform game-based Harolds. Learning “game” after improvising from a more relationship-based place is a challenge, but Emily believes different approaches to longform are like tools in a toolbelt, and you should figure out which work best for you. She has studied under some UCB greats and Minneapolis greats and attempts to combine it all.


Payment of $40 due the day of the class, cash or check preferred.
