This workshop has started or is in the past.

Class Description: Learn to do intermediate level improv scenes. "Organic" means doing scenes just off of a suggestion. This is game-of-the-scene style improv, but without an opening. It means starting from nothing. You will use strategies like: confessions, gifting, real life inspirations, framing to build small decision into grand scenes. You will also learn things like the gentle yes, voice of reason and justification to learn more about a scene as it is happening. This is the stepping stone to doing great scenes with zero set up. (No class May 25th for Memorial Day weekend). Class will meet in Studio 208 at Adobe Studios.
