CLASS DESCRIPTION:

Improvisers, have you ever come off stage and said:

"Great scene, WHO were we?”

Or, "Great scene, WHERE were we?”

Like any other narrative form of story telling, improvisers need to be able to answer all the questions of the scene and show. WHERE? WHO? WHAT? HOW? WHY? WHEN? Crucial questions in storytelling. Often one or more of these important questions can be left unaddressed in an improv performance. This is a class Rich has been teaching for many years in LA and around the country. Learn how Improvisers play WHERE (object work), WHO (point of view and character), WHAT (games or playable dynamics), HOW & WHY (the gift-givers) and WHEN (dealing with time, linear and shattered narrative). Join this workshop that will leave you with many tools to create characters & worlds instantly. Discovery over invention. Relationship over situation!

Rich has taught this class at UCB LA and all over the US and CANADA.
