Improv Online - Workshop 1
As in-person workshops are on hold during the crisis, Im pleased to launch a series of online workshops over Zoom that offer something unique for improvisers to not only add to their improv skills, but also be more adaptable with working with the online platform.
With Improv having moved from the stage to the screen, it is necessary for improvisers the world over to rethink what that means for performing. While the online platform is more restrictive than the stage, it is not as restrictive as you might think. After all, actors can act on camera so improvisers can perform on screen!
Blending tools and techniques from screen acting with improv, participants will maximise the potential for performing online, expanding the potential and maximising the fun of performing over Zoom or whatever your chosen stage is!
In these workshops, the following content is covered.
