Getting Out of Your Head at the Top of Your Scenes Workshop
Midtown Arts Center
Houston, TX
Share this event:

We'll run through some exercises to help the improviser start scenes from a place of purity, focus and proactivity. We'll assault the talky part of the brain, where the self critic lies and get to a place of fearlessness, openness, listening and reacting honestly in the moment. Come get some reps in being completely present with your scene partner(s) and in truthful response, with emotion and point of view.

Joe Bill is widely regarded as one of the best teachers of Scenic and Comedic Improvisation in America today. He currently teaches, performs and does corporate training at iO Chicago, is an Artistic Associate for The Chicago Improv Festival, and acts as an Artistic Adviser for a number of Improvisation and Comedy Theaters all over the world.  Joe and Mark Sutton, his partner in the Nationally Touring Improvised Production BASSPROV, have evolved the Annoyance approach into POWER IMPROV, which they both have been teaching all over the world at Festivals, Theaters and Universities since 2000.

Joe has performed, coached, directed and innovated with a vast number of successful groups including The Screw Puppies at Annoyance, The Armando Diaz Theatrical Experience & Georgia Pacific at iO Chicago (with whom he developed The Bat), The Throwdown at Donny's Skybox- Second City Chicago and The Scramble at The Playground. He directs and performs in Chica Go Go and Chicago Improv Gorillas at The P.I.T. in New York City and he's frequently a guest improviser in Let's Have A Ball & ASSSSCAT 3000 at UCB Theater in New York & L.A. and Show X at HUGE Improv Theater in Minneapolis.
