Learn the basics of both Improv and Ensemble in this fun and lively class. Topics covered include: embracing the “strong and wrong,” staying present, listening, and finding radical agreement. We also teach the framework of scenic structure, and take a good long look at creating “the where.” This class is as much about learning basic improv techniques as it is about creating a new ensemble through shared learning and experience. The final class ends in an invited showing of what we have been working on.
No previous improv or theater training required.
All levels welcome! R18+

Level 3 is about something we like to call “the work up.”
The work up is creating both the content and the rules as you go, all with a strong sense of composition and story. At it’s best, it is impossible to tell if it’s improvised or scripted. In this level, the ensemble is guided, step by step, through creating complex scenic structures using devising and composition techniques, as well as other tools that lead to masterful ensemble spontaneity. The final class ends in a class showcase performance. BIT Level 2 required.
