TRUTH BOMBS/CHARACTER CREATION (2-DAY IMPROV INTENSIVE)
Day 1: Truth Bombs
Playing from a truthful place when we improvise can be freeing in it's simplicity. The truth resonates with us, and allows us to worry less about inventing the funny and lets us focus more on discovering it. Truth bombs will help you explore the power and fun of playing from your real life and show you how to turn those experiences into wonderful offers on stage.
Day 2: Character Creation
As improvisers creating comedy in the moment can become less challenging and more fun when we filter everything we do through the eyes, ears, and point of view of a character. Character Creation will push you to create memorable, sustainable, character choices. Using unique and traditional methods we'll show you how to summon larger than life characters as well as more subtle, nuanced weirdos.
