Let’s find the funny together.

Performance makes students focus on what the scene and their scene partners do. Focus is then given to the two elements that build all improvisation: reaction and awareness. We explore the tools behind comedic scenes, such as the using specifics, developing acute observation and behavioural studies of improvised characters. Ultimately, the students will practice creating full scenes and applying them with a various array of tools that are useful for all forms of scenic and gamic improv comedy. Simply by adding simple ideas into the collective whole to generate a shared experience on stage.
