The ICC Level 2 – CHARACTERS AND RELATIONSHIPS
*** 4-DAY SUMMER INTENSIVE ***
Dates: July 15th, 16th, 17th & 18th
Time: Each day, 10:00 – 16:00
Location: ICC Theatre, Frederiksholms Kanal 2, København
Long-form Improv performance depends a great deal on the 2-person scene: who are these characters? why are we seeing them? How do they feel about each other? How do we feel about them? These are questions that we need to answer and is the essence of Level 2.
In our Level 2 Characters and Relationships class, you’ll learn games, techniques and skills to develop fun, unique and believable characters immediately, in the moment. You’ll practice ways to create and sustain characters in the moment through our “HAPPI”process: Heightening, Awareness, Patterns, Physicality, and Inspiration.
You’ll play characters who are both close to yourself and ones much different than you. Much of the time you will be with a partner practicing the techniques and skills that make for a successful scene. You’ll also continue to focus on playing moment to moment–bringing a brick to the scene, not the whole cathedral.
There are so many characters inside you waiting to come out and play–let them!

What will I do in this class?
All of the exercises in Level 2 concentrate on making you a better scene player. Much of the time you will be exploring in pairs the techniques that make for a successful 2-person scene: humanity, relationships, wants, making choices, vulnerability, the flaw, heightening and exploring. This level also requires you to become more analytical of the comic process, so whatever you do on stage is a deliberate choice with the aim of building the scene to a comedic climax.
