Class meets Tuesdays, Nov. 3-Dec. 8, 7-9 p.m.
In this seven week online class, students will refine and augment the skills and tools covered in Levels One and Two through exploration and heightening of emotional choices and adjustments to add perspective to their scene work. These techniques will help improvisers enrich the relationships they create onstage with their fellow performers. These will develop into fully-realized scenes about emotionally- and relationally-oriented characters who are fully invested in themselves, in one another, and their shared environments. This class includes a student showcase. The prerequisites for this class are Levels One and Two at Stomping Ground or completion of another comparable improv training program.
This course will focus on:
Showing - Instead of Telling - How You Feel About Your Base Reality
Affecting and Being Affected By Your Scene Partners
Using Object Work & Environment Interactions to Create Dynamic Stage Pictures
Finding Repeatable Behaviors to Define Character Perspectives
Exploring Scene Subtext: What is the Scene Truly About?
Basic Scene Edit Techniques
