The Silent Movie - with Jonathan Pitts
The Silent Movie is both an improvised narrative form and an original show. In this workshop, you'll learn how to put together the narrative beats of different silent movie shorts, as well as explore different silent movie styles, and expanding improvisation acting to be able to explore the heightened acting that silent movies featured. In this
workshop, the performers will improvise while lit up by a film projector, in front of a large white sheet serving as the screen, and to the accompaniment of old timey piano music.

This style of improv narrative incorporates clowning, ensemble work, over-acting, hyper-physicality, and listening with your eyes since no one on-stage is saying anything. One
hundred years-ago in 1918 silent movies were at their peak, now in 2018 you can find the peak of fun through the narrative genre of Silent Movies.
