Playing the Long Game
The One Act, a single long scene in the same space and time, like an act of a play with no blackouts, is a wonderful way to produce real, grounded characters and environments where nothing is wasted. Learn how to integrate subtle, patience play into an engaging piece.
Expand on this by moving into Monoscenes, a secret Harold using hidden edits to find games within your scene to explore, heighten and return to. Finally, The Pretty Flower where you mix the patience of a Monoscene and speed of tag run to explore the ripple effects and worlds created by your games and characters.

Teacher: Carleen Macdermid is super old so has been improvising and teaching since the late 1990s. Carleen has taught and performed in Australia, the U.K. and across Europe. She loves longform improv and the massive variety of forms within it, specialising in Monoscenes with her team The Rebranding, The Movie Form with Genre Claude Van Damme and everything and anything with twoprov and producing partner, Shem Pennant, in C3Something. Carleen's career highlights include performing a number of times at the Del Close Marathon in New York City and playing with premier team, Convoy, at The Upright Citizens Brigade's 10th anniversary show in LA.
