Emotional Heightening (Game)

In this six week course, learn how to use emotional choices to find and play the game of the scene. Using emotion makes your scenes more grounded, more relatable, and less likely to sputter out after a few clever moves. Focusing on the emotional reality of the scene also helps isolate premise from monologues, something else we'll be working on. This class focuses on fundamentals, but if you haven't done ANY improv before it might not be for you. NO CLASS MAY 31.

Teacher: Alex Berg

About Alex Berg: Alex Berg grew up in Connecticut, where there's not much to do besides climb trees and read Calvin & Hobbes. Shortly after getting a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Vassar College, he threw a pair of cargo shorts and a few t-shirts into a duffel bag and drove out to LA. Now, Alex spends the bulk of his waking hours writing, acting, and improvising. Currently, he performs with UCB house teams Sentimental Lady and Convoy, and can frequently be seen prowling around backstage hoping to sit in with other shows as well. Occasionally, he shows up on television, in shows like Terriers, Reno! 911, and MANswers. Recently, he played a naked old lady in Hell Baby (Sundance 2013) and a post apocalyptic hipster in Best Friends Forever (Slamdance 2013). Beyond all that, he's a huge science nerd and a bit unkempt. Deal with it.
