Unexpected Productions Improv Classes
How do they do that? Learn the basics of improvisation. Discover how to actively listen, to use your own life to create stories, and work on the fundamental principles of improvisation. The class will focus on team building and the concept that "If your teammate looks good, then you will look good". Emphasis will be placed on understanding and utilizing basic scene work skills and most importantly, having fun. Lots of laughs and lots of stage time. All students begin at this level. It's a prerequisite to the other levels.
Improv 200 picks up where Improv 100 left off. Using "Yes, and..." and the other scene building skills learned in Improv 100, we will create scenes of greater complexity, as well as polishing concepts such as "Status", "Tilt" and "Re-incorporation". We will also be using more of the games that you see regularly in a TheatresportsTM match. This is the first class to perform in the big multi-level showcase!
This class continues to work on all the basic skills of the previous classes with emphasis placed on character work. Scene building will be a point of exploration as well as using the environment and non-linear narrative. The class will emphasize bringing your scene work to life with energy, believable environments and convincing characters. Learn to sustain a more complex narrative and play with commitment. This class is will participate in the end of session showcase: A chance to test your skills in front of an audience.
Improv 400 will continue to hone the skills of the more advanced improviser, integrating concepts learned in previous classes. The class will explore narrative and address individual strengths as well as areas that need improvement. Further your Improv with the chance to create "multi level" scenes with deep and rich characters. It also provides an introduction to MUSICAL IMPROV scenes. This class also performs in the showcase.
This class is the culmination of our Improvisational School. Emphasis will be on fine tuning the technique of the improvisers and working on specific skills such as performance, related styles and finding limits of the art of Improv. Tuition includes free participation in the Playground to jam with other students and work on your favorite formats as well as headlining the SHOWCASE.
The Playground is jam night for students, ensemble cast members and alumni to play with one another and continue to work on their Improv skills. This class meets at The Market Theater on Monday nights from 7:00pm to 9:30pm.
Send one of our experienced company members to coach your group (improv or other). YOU can choose who you want or we can make recommendations base upon a specific skill you would like to work on.
