Three Workshops, Plus a Weekend Intensive!

I’m so glad to be coming back to one of my favorite improv theaters, The Improv Conspiracy. I’ve learned so much just by watching these great actors. I’m excited to bring three separate workshops and a full-on weekend intensive. Here are the offerings:

Pro-Positive Choices
Wednesday, 21 August, 7-10pm
A toolbox contains more than a hammer, so shouldn’t your scenes contain more than anger and conflict? Find creative freedom when positive emotional choices drive your scenes. Guide your scenes forward without a need to conjure up an argument, defend your side of the story, or your need to have your ego intact at the scene’s end. It’s not about winning our losing—it’s about keeping the scene alive.

Shape/Gesture/Tempo: Viewpoints Elements in Action
Thursday, 22 August, 2-5pm
Whether you’re an old pro using Viewpoints, or just you just wanna be mindful of these, using Shape, Gesture and Tempo creates instant character, dynamic and scenes without you adding anything but your awareness (which you’re already bringing!). No previous Viewpoints classes needed for you to take this workshop and begin your new way of feeling/being/acting/living!

Let It Go
Friday, August 23, 2-5pm
Are you making decisions of where the scene’s supposed to go without letting it go where it wants to go? Start your scenes strongly, certainly and surprisingly. If you think you know where your scene’s going… you’re probably missing out on some great experiences!

Improvising as an Actor,
A Weekend Intensive
Friday, August 23, 7-10
Saturday, August 24
Sunday, August 25, 10am-5pm
Note: This workshop is currently by invite only.

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 weekend intensive workshop 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.

Includes a class show using Daves method, Sunday 9:00pm during the Launchpad.

Note: Friday and Saturday are held at the TIC Training Annex (37 Swanston St, CBD. Room 502). Sunday is held at TIC HQ (19 Meyers Place, CBD)
