Playing with Yourself: Solo Improv Workshop with Mike Brown's
What just happened?! You did. Solo Improv is something that we do everyday without realizing it. Ever talk to yourself in the bathroom? Surrrrrrrrrrrrrre you don't. *wink* We all do. It's what connects us as human beings. All of our quirks, all of our insecurities....these are things that we can bring to the stage. And whether you are on stage performing with an ensemble or by yourself, it's all about finding something interesting to do with the time that has been giving to you. (I partially stole that line... from Gandalf).

"Alright nerds. We're going to go with..." -Beca, Pitch Perfect

This round will pick up from where the last one left off. Each class participant will have the opportunity to try out different styles and forms of Solo Improv. These forms include, but are not limited to: The Monoscene, The Interview, The Physical Enviornment, and an original form created specifically for Solo Improv: The Beast.
In addition, each class participant will finish off the class by choosing a form to their liking and performing a 7-10 min Solo Improv set in front of the class.

Class size: maximum of 12
Prerequisite: intermediate experience with improv

Things you will re-learn in this workshop:
-Saying 'Yes' to yourself.
We often concentrate on saying 'yes' to our scene partners and forget to say 'yes' to ourselves. The power of saying 'Yes' to yourself is liberating and refreshing.
-Silence is golden.
As scary as silence can sometimes be, it is a tool for you to use in your scene work. Know the difference between doing nothing and having nothing to do.
-Physicality, movement, and object work.
There is no solo improv without being active on stage. Because, lets be honest, who wants to see a person sitting in a chair having a conversation with them self?
-Knock, knock. Who's there? It's me!
Learn how to create multiple personalities on stage that the audience can also see and hear and how to manage them. It's actually easier than you might think!
