Acting v. Performing
Initially, improvisation was primarily a tool an actor could use to be more spontaneous on stage and create solid art. As time has gone by, improv has become one of the most popular forms of theatre on and off the stage. With that shift, comes a greater number of people “performing” and “playing” on stage and forgetting the roots of theatre: acting. This workshop will bring the classic skills of the trained actor, into the world of quick response theatre. Other than improv, the last scripted show you did was a middle school play? No problem. Take your performance up a notch with these professional theatre artists as they build the frame around your improvised toolkit, helping you create a show worthy of the Tony Awards.
