THEMATIC HAROLDS with John Timothy
Why does every Harold have to look the same? As a blueprint, the Harold is one of the best long form improv formats out there, but what if there was more?
This workshop focuses on moving past the cookie cutter Harold format and developing the tools to change the composition of our shows on the fly. We’ll focus on letting the suggestion inform not only the content, but also the structure and mechanics of our shows to create unique, individualized pieces of theatre. If the suggestion is a question, how can we make our shows look more like the answer?
Oct 12, 2017 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM


THE MOVIE with John Timothy
This workshop focuses on the improvised longform “the Movie,” created by Del Close with the Family. The class will simultaneously learn how to find games in classic and contemporary movie genres and to simulate film making techniques like camera angles and editing on the live stage. (To clarify — NO CAMERAS INVOLVED, the form is performed live on stage only).
OCT 14 & OCT 15, 2017 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM


ACTION IMPROV with John Timothy
Stop talking about the fun thing and start doing the fun thing. This workshop focuses on how to clarify your thinking about scenes and gameplay to put action in the forefront. We’ll work on developing an action-forward framework for going into scenes and playing them once you’re in them. We’ll also work on how to turn traditionally talky scenes into action and reaction driven scenes. Do more. Talk less.
