Expressive Improvisation

Class Description: We will warm up with improvisational comedy exercises to prepare our collective group mind working together on our way to “3 line scene” exercises and eventually small groups doing Armando style scene creations: a suggestion from the audience, short monologues, and improvised scenes. While one group is performing, the others will sketch what they feel: recreating a scene, portraying one or more of the characters, or anything they feel.
