SILENT MOVIE with Jonathan Pitts
The Silent Movie is both an improvised narrative form and an original show created by Jonathan Pitts. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to put together the narrative beats of different silent movie shorts, as well as explore different silent movie styles, and expanding improvisation acting to be able to explore the heightened acting that silent movies featured. In this workshop, the performers will improvise while lit up by a film projector, in front of a large white sheet serving as the screen, and to the accompaniment of old timey piano music. This style of improv narrative incorporates clowning, ensemble work, over-acting, hyper-physicality, and listening with your eyes since no one on-stage is saying anything. 100 years ago in 1917 silent movies were at their peak, now in 2017 you can find the peak of fun through the narrative genre of Silent Movies.

SAY YES TO YOURSELF with Zack Willis
This workshop will help players with a little more experience listen to their own choices, own them, and heighten what they’re already doing. We often fly through our scenes and either miss or forget all the fun choices we’ve made on the way. This workshop will offer some tools and ideas for making sure you use the whole buffalo.

DITCHING THE DETACHMENT with Zeke Nicholson
Improv is all about finding the funny, but the truth is we often sacrifice the best version of our scenes in the interest of getting to a quicker and thinner laugh. This workshop will focus on grounding, commitment, and acting, in the interest of organic exploration, rather than arbitrary invention that ultimately prevents our scenes from fully evolving. At the end of this, you will win a damn Oscar in every scene (BAFTA? Full disclosure, I’m American).

CONTROLLED CHAOS with Zeke Nicholson
Many improv scenes and sets can be technically correct yet still somehow suffer from not being dynamic enough. This workshop will focus on methods to introduce a little bit of chaos into your scene work, making unexpected and bold choices that keep the improviser ahead of the audience, and fostering a greater sense of play. Its important to be able to stay on the rails, but its also important to jump out of the cart and fall down the mountain every now and again.

SITCOM WRITING BASICS with Zeke Nicholson
Do you want to write Drama for television? Okay, good luck, I don’t know how to do that. I can, however, help you if you want to write comedy! This workshop will cover topics ranging from basic sitcom structure, pitching in a writers room, punching up jokes, and making your characters come to life. You’ll come away armed with a number of tools to go tackle that pilot you’ve been meaning to write!

KEEP MAKING CHOICES! with Lydia Hensler
This class will be about making bold fun choices and sustaining them throughout the scene.

Learn to play in a way where you feel fearless and never want to leave the magic you’ve created.

CRAFTING A SHOW with Lydia Hensler
This class is for more experienced performers who perform regularly with teams and practice groups. In this class we’ll be looking at the show as a whole piece and building a magical world beyond a collection of scenes or the structure of a form. How do we go beyond what we’ve done and take it to the next level.
