Event description
Online Improv Elective: Creating Bold + Brash Characters

About this event

Create out of the box characters that will bring vibrancy to all aspects of your improvisation. By examining and developing the tools that allow you to build unique characters from the ground up, we will find performances that you didn’t know you had in you. We will explore improvisational scene work by using inspiration from outside sources to bring fully formed characters to your comedy. This class is designed for all levels.

Class includes:

  • Character creation
  • Initiating through character
  • Bringing together two strong characters

If we have to cancel the event due to low numbers, we will do this with 24 hours notice.
