She’s back! Last year we loved having Lydia Hensler over so much, we’ve brought her back. Lydia is an amazing improviser and teacher of improv at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade in New York. She plays on the superb team Grandma’s Ashes, a delightful team that play with so much joy, support and energy that their comedy feels almost communal. She also plays in Take in Personal, The Hip Hop Improv Show and can be seen in various web videos for UCBComedy, College Humor, Jest, Landline TV etc.
### Tangential Harolds & Group Game Harolds 18-19 July £100/£120
Tangential Harolds -An experimental take on the Harold where you blow out the game completely in first beats, then pick something tangential from the first beat to play in the second creating a whole new game that gets completely blown out, so at the end of the Harold you have 6 completely blown out games, as well as group games going into third beats.
Group Game Harolds – An inverted Harold where all the beats are group games and the group games are 1-person scenes.
THIS IS AN ADVANCE WORKSHOP AND STUDENTS WILL NEED A KNOWLEDGE OF THE HAROLD
