Workshop: David Razowsky's Viewpoints Immersion (SF Improv Festival 2013)
Saturday, September 14th from 10am to 1pm AND Sunday, September 15th from 10am to 1pm.
While teaching for Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre School, Second City veteran David Razowsky was exposed to--and inspired by--the power of Anne Bogart and Tina Landau's Viewpoints training, and immediately saw how the tools of Viewpoints play in improv theatre. Razowsky's Viewpoints Immersion will focus the actor to spontaneously respond through compulsion rather than what choice is "right or wrong." The actor will learn the power of working from impulse, the power of movement, and the strength of the "immediate response in the present moment."
Be prepared to see your craft in a new light, be prepared to see with new eyes, and be prepared for a creative rejuvination.
This class will meet at the Eureka Theater (215 Jackson Street, SF) Saturday, September 14th from 10am to 1pm and Sunday, September 15th from 10am to 1pm. This class will cap off at 16 students. Cost is $155 for this two-day immersive workshop.

David has been called "the guru of improvisation" and "an improviser's improviser," who connects the mindfulness of Buddhism with improvisation's core principals of being in the moment, taking care of your partner, and groundedness.
