Acting for Improv
Seattle Experimental Theater Workshop: Acting for Improv
Are you someone who has come to improv without a background in acting, or one who is looking to improve the theatrical side to your improv scenes? If so, this workshop is for you! In this class, we will explore some basic physical, vocal, and scripted scene study techniques, and how they can bolster your improvised scenes. We will work on simple staging, movement and stance, characterization and emotional expression, and vocal techniques to add dynamics to your characters. In this workshop we will work with both scripted scenes (no memorization required - we will hold scripts in hand) and improvisation.
