Instructor: Laura Manasewich

(PayPal account not required)

So: you know the rules, but does that make you a great quarterback? Or do you feel like you're constantly on the JV short form team?

In "The Set List," Sea Tea Improv will teach you how to play the games you know (and many you don't) to the very best of your ability. Root out the games within the game, and play to the top of your intelligence no matter if you're speaking in gibberish, mime, poorly translated Russian, or alphabetical order. We'll apply advanced scenework techniques to simple games to find the perfect blend of short-form styles and practical theatrical concerns (is there conflict? How's your stage presence looking?). Make bolder choices, do better scenes, and walk away with a greater understanding of how to have the most fun while using the best part of your brain. Lots of personal feedback in every class. Bring your own strengths and style to short-form games: that's the goal.

Prerequisite: Completion of at least two of our "Foundation" level courses (The Scene, The Game, The Character), or permission from Sea Tea Improv (request permission by emailing comedy@seateaimprov.com ).

All class meetings are on Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm to 9:30pm

Class dates:
Tuesday, June 10
Tuesday, June 17
Tuesday, June 24
Tuesday, July 1
Tuesday, July 8
Tuesday, July 15
Tuesday, July 22
Tuesday, July 29 (Share from 9pm – 9:30pm)

This course is one of Sea Tea Improv's two "Focus"-level adult improv courses: The Second Beat, focused on longform improvisation, and this course, focused on shortform improvisation. This course was last taught in Fall 2014 by Summar Elguindy.

Cost: $199

This course is limited to 12 students.

Workshop: Taking the Initiative - Initiating Scenes from Openings
Monologues. Interviews. Pattern games. Confusing avant garde interpretive dance numbers. Improvisers have a vast arsenal of openings that we use to inspire our scenes. But have you ever watched an opening and felt anything but inspired? Someone tells a ten minute monologue about cleaning out the gutters. A gang of improvisers waltz around pretending to be giant lobsters with the flu. Transforming the wacky free association or the rich little details of an opening into the actual first line of a scene can be tricky.

In this workshop we will focus on initiating scenes from openings. We'll practice the art of openings themselves, then work on drawing premises from openings, clearly communicating premises to scene partners, and building and heightening strong scenes from our initiations. Great for a montages, Harolds, and a variety of other types of long form!

About the Instructor: Daniel Davidson is one of the newer members of Sea Tea Improv and brings with him a wealth of national improv experience. 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 making his Sea Tea Improv teaching debut and asks that you please put you cell phone on silent or vibrate.

This course is one of Sea Tea Improv’s 3 “Foundation” level adult improv courses, along with “The Scene”. This class was last offered in early 2014 & taught by Joe Leonardo.

This course is limited to 15 students.

Do you tend to hang out on the back line until you feel like you have the perfect idea? Do you cower in terror that your scenes will never get swept? Or, do you think a fellow improviser is so funny that you wonder what it would be like to only do scene after scene with her?

If any of these apply to you, sign up for 2-Prov -- a performance class on the art of performing with only two people onstage. You & your partner will play 100% of the characters, make 100% of the choices, and do 100% of the editing. Challenging, fun, and freeing, 2-Prov is just the best.

Taught by Julia Pistell of "Julia and Jeffrey," winners of Round 1 of the CT Cage Match 2013.

There are two ways to sign up: grab a partner and sign up together, OR sign up solo and we'll match you with a great partner for the course! All you need is instructor approval (send a request via email to julia@seateaimprov.com ).

Class will end with a big show! Get brave and sign up!
