Improv Level 02 (Mon)
with G. Benjamin Bazán
Level 2: Scene Work Strategies
Prerequisite: Must have taken an improv class at ColdTowne or elsewhere.
Strengthen your two person scenes using characters, relationships, and finding & playing “The Game.”
Building on the fundamentals from Level 01, students will begin to practice skills and techniques that strengthen their scenes and characters. Concepts will be introduced to help create deeper characters and relationships more quickly, while keeping things fun! Students will learn how to identify patterns within their scenes to create “The Game”: the engine that drives comedy in an improvised scene or sketch. This class includes a student performance!
