Class Description:


We talk about "unusual things" but it's even better when it's a "foolish" thing. Meaning, it's not just that something is off --- but something is off because a character in the scene is being destructive. A robot boyfriend could be unusual. Programming your robot boyfriend to have the personality of the most toxic ex you've had: foolish. This class will drill scenes where we make ourselves fools. Once you get the habit of making yourself foolish, you will make scenes much more easily playable and funny!
