A lot of people see improv as a fundamental verbal skill. We disagree! Your body exists whether it’s speaking or not; what we’re after is action and an energetic sense of play!
in this course we’ll explore how to to really physicalize the yes/and with:
- big, believable reactions
- bold character choices
- dynamic and profound interpersonal relationships
- release of body tension
- the basic principles of slapstick (with a HUGE emphasis on safety!)
Don’t get stuck in “talking heads” mode, or always looking for the witty quip and those elusive big jokes! Unleash your physicality to react to what’s already onstage: YOU AND YOUR PARTNERS!
Important: ALL BODIES AND ABILITIES ARE WELCOME HERE! Like all Rise classes, this is an equal-access workshop. Every body and brain can engage in this play!
