Dramatic Improv [For improvisers/actors/performers]

Saturday 11am- 1pm
Centre 42, Rehearsal Studio

Traditionally, improv has been associated with comedy. But it can easily be a dramatic art form given a different framework. Go on a journey with Hazel Ho, director of The Improv Company’s resident dramatic improv group, The Plot Thickeners, as she and her team impart their knowledge on how to create rich stories and nuanced characters.

Find the Game [For improvisers/actors/performers]

Sunday 11am - 1pm
Centre 42, Meeting Room

While short-form improv has a tendency to lean towards comedy, it might be harder to find the connection in long-form improvisation. Through understanding Upright Citizens Brigade's concept of the Game of the scene, work together with director and experienced improviser Jon Cancio to discover "the funny" of scenes, and learn how to heighten and expand on "the funny".

Keith Johnstone Workshop by Arnaud Pierre

Sunday 1 - 3pm
Centre 42, Meeting Room

In improv, performers risk. They experiment. Take chances. There is something exhilarating about being liberated from the structure of a script. In this workshop, students will play freely as they learn about the different styles of short-form improv through games and team exercises, particularly that of Keith Johnstone which includes TheatreSports, Gorilla Theatre and The Micetro. Forming teams, students will pit their creativity and spontaneity against one another, learn to direct improvised scenes, and perform their scenes in front of an audience. At the end of the workshop, students will be well-versed in improvisation and master the skills needed to tell a good, impromptu story.
