This workshop will focus on the world building, long form improvisational form, the “Slacker.” The Slacker utilizes tag outs in lieu of sweep edits to move from scene to scene to play either the repercussions of the previous scene, the plot of the previous scene, the history of the previous scene, or game. The Slacker is a fast paced, stream of consciousness form that truly explores “if this is true, what else is true” in both micro and macro ways.
