15th - 17th July Learnhow to effortlessly create instant relationships, compelling points of view, strong character choices, and exciting and natural scenarios.
Improvising as an Actor
Improvisation director/teacher/actor David Razowsky feels that “all improvisation is acting,” and has seen great changes when an “improviser” starts to think and act as an “actor who improvises.” This two and a half day workshop (1 evening + 2 days) is focused on getting the actor to become comfortable organically developing a character within a given set of circumstances. Actors will be taught how to effortlessly create instant relationships, compelling points of view, strong character choices, and exciting and natural scenarios. Actors who have worked with Razowsky calls his approach “compelling,” “gratifying,” “simple,” and “exciting.” Once you’re exposed to this, you won’t let go.
Bonus: Guided Performance
As part of the workshop there will be a guided improvisation performance on the Sunday evening. This is an unmissable opportunity to put what you have learned into action!
Performing in a show that’s directed by David Razowsky is a special event, particularly when David directs you while you perform. His gentle, direct “side coaching” has proven to benefit all improvisers who’ve joined him for these “Guided Improv Scenes.” The cast of actors will be lead through two-person scenes with David keeping the actors focused on their points-of-view, guiding them toward the “shiny objects,” following where the scene’s heat is and where the scenic surprises live. All this with a live audience!
(Note: Participation in the performance is optional - but highly recommended!)
