How do we produce a thematically engaging, coherent show on a moment-to-moment basis… with no director? When art is created by committee, we rely on trust and honoring each others ideas, while never depriving the group of our own. This is a three-hour, advanced workshop that will explore the basic tenets of group-minded improv, how they are put to best use in forms like “The Harold” (no prior experience necessary), and where to look for the patterns and threads that tie our piece together without relying too much on narrative.
Date and Time: SATURDAY, JUNE 29, 2019 from 12 PM – 3PM
