Special Class: Get Out of Your Head

Special Class, Sunday June 4 at 1:00 PM, $30.00 at Theatre 99

Get out of your head. Too often when playing a character we keep thinking: "What would this character do right now?" instead of living in the moment and reacting naturally. This workshop will give you the tools to step out into the scene fully committed as a character, and keep that commitment while focusing on your scene partner. Whether you're a president, an astronaut, or a fire goblin, this workshop will let you react at the top of your intelligence while freeing your mind of the internal struggle. These are characters created from the outside in.

Special Class: Mid scene starts: The Tool of Assumption

2 hours with Tim learning improv $30.00 here at Theatre 99, At, June 10th @ Noon

Trying to find the scene can get in the way of the scene. Watching two improvisors figuring out what is going on usually makes improv slow and predictable, so how can we use what’s naturally there in the scene and not make it feel forced. We start it in the middle. We assume, relationships, environment, etc. Assumption is a powerful tool in improv. Be it the right or wrong assumption, it’s a choice that can be used. By focusing on these skills we create more confident performers who will become more aware of the tools around us to give us a stronger relationship to our partner. We will also explore the power of silence and non-verbal physicality to communicate and influence the action onstage.
