IMPROVISED STORIES with Sarah Marie
(mid/advanced performance level students- must have prior stage experience to participate in this class. 9th grade and up)
This class will teach students how to excel at narrative improvisation. It’s actually much easier than it sounds! We are storytellers. We watch stories every day, we tell stories to each other all the time, and the ability to do this is in our very bones. Actors will learn the simple tools and techniques to create moving, hilarious, poignant stories on the spot. Fully improvised! Students will discover new and surprising depths to their work instantly through basic improv concepts: focused listening, commitment, organic discovery and sincere response to moment over context and the obligation to “perform” resulting in a profound ease and strength to improvising a narrative story.
