In this 3-day workshop, you’ll develop the skills to make bold character choices quickly. You’ll learn how to improvise a great scene while playing the game, rather than how to play the game at the expense of a scene. Plus, you’ll learn how to play the show as a whole rather than just the individual games. Finally, you’ll learn about how to find your place in the show.
You’ll learn the different types of short-form games including:
- Guessing games
- Line games
- Scenic games
- Gibberish games
- Gimmick games
- Group games
Once you learn the types of games you’ll have the confidence you can play any game with ease.
Short form will also help you immensely with your long form choices. You’ll recognize what “game of the scene” is. You’ll learn that all long forms are just longer versions of short form games. Most importantly, you will have so much fun and get out of your head. This workshop will also help you become a paid performer for ICC’s Touring Company.
