Level 2 - Scene work: Support & Game
Fall (starting October 11th) Taught by Peter Cunis, TA Natalie O'Sullivan
Showcase is Friday, 12/1
Once you have the basics covered, we take you deeper into long form improv. This class uses the concept of ‘Finding the Game’ as a method for making scenes less confusing and more fun. The game is generally the funny or interesting thing that should be the focus for an entire scene. You will work on finding the game early, whether you are in the scene or not. Making the game a group responsibility teaches active listening and helps you learn about scene dynamics. These concepts are the key to good support. Knowing when and how to do scene edits, walk-ons, and tag outs (the foundation of support) will also be covered in this class. After eight weeks, students will run their own improv set in a performance at one of our Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night P.I.G shows.
