COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Improvisation for Actors is a core competency skill for actors that want a PROCESS and TECHNIQUES for exploring scenes, situations, characters, motivations, back-story, dialogue and narrative experimentation – using IMPROV. An aspect of the course is to remind the actor to be free and open to playing in a scene and to reduce being in their heads, through over-preparing and making intellectual decisions. IMPROV will free you up to explore your instincts, and give you tools the next time a director says, “let’s just improv it.” PS – and yes, you can get to funny too.
