iRev CdC: Creating Characters for Improv
In this fun and exciting character intensive, participants will have the opportunity to create many diverse characters from huge and exaggerated to small and subtle. Students will learn how to use gestures, rhythms, ticks, quirks, postures and other physical attributes to quickly develop a variety of fully realized and distinct characters. While physicality is obviously emphasized, Tracy also teaches how to stay emotionally invested even while playing big and wacky characters. Whether participants consider themselves to be highly cerebral and analytical or more physical and movement-oriented, Creating Characters For Improv has something for everyone.
