C3? Action Improv with Kevin Scott of Burn Manhattan/Centralia
One trap improvisors fall into is the talking scene or the motionless scene. Action improve aims to take tools from various techniques and styles (including clowning, Comedia Dell'arte, Viewpoints and more) to energize and activate the players and the space. The workshop focuses on using physical exploration to inspire scenes and character choices. participants will also explore using mirror and transformation techniques within a longhorn in the style often referred to as Organic Improv.
