Love watching improvisers who make bold, unusual character choices? Wish you could do more of it?
In this class, students explore many ways to access and advance their character practice. Find a motivation through knowing your characters' histories and personal values/beliefs. Deepen your on-stage relationships by getting to the "why it matters" of what's happening between characters. Use bolder and larger physicality to play characters who are very different from yourself. Using accents in a respectful way and play characters to the top of your intelligence.
This class is for anyone who has taken Improv 101 and wants to get deeper into playing characters, and will be designed to help everyone feel comfortable even if you struggle with character or making bold choices.
