Improvisers in Space! Grounding Scenes in Reality with Object Work

Instructor: Daniel Davidson

Date & Time: Wednesday, December 17, 2014 from 7:00pm to 10:00pm

Do you find yourself in “talking head” scenes that take place in no particular location? Feel anxious about initiations or that you’re over-thinking your responses? In this workshop we’ll explore techniques to get you out of your head and into your body and the space around you. Taking time to define the physical space not only allows the beginning improviser to feel calm at the top of a scene, it also serves as a strong initiation without having to say a word. By giving weight to objects, the advanced improviser adds richness to her scenework, drawing the audience, and her fellow improvisers in deeper.

About the Instructor:

Daniel Davidson brings with him a wealth of national improv experience to Sea Tea Improv. He first began studying improv with Bay Area Theatersports (BATS) in San Francisco in 2008 with the modest goal of meeting people in a new city. Instead, he met his Destiny (now his wife of 5 years)! After completing the BATS improv program, Daniel trained privately with instructor Dave Dennison, focusing on theatrical scenework. Soon it was off to Hollywood, where he studied improv and comedy writing at The Second City Hollywood and iO West, and graduated from The Second City Conservatory in 2012. Since moving to Hartford in 2013 Daniel has been the unofficial winner of several 2-prov shows and an untold number of arguments. He is thrilled to be a Sea Tea Improv instructor and asks that you please put you cell phone on silent or vibrate.
