New York City based veteran House Team Improviser Scott Benjamin will conduct a workshop focusing on an improv form called “The Spokane”.
This form is also called “The Family Guy” because it has elements of that show sudden surprising flashbacks, and quick returns to the main scene. It is a really fun form to study and play, because it includes elements of the monoscene (where groundedness is a virtue) and also elements of “game,” “heightening,” and fast play.
What will you learn at this workshop?
In learning this form, you’ll learn to stretch yourself, to play both fast and slow, both grounded and absurd, and you’ll also develop the “muscle” of remembering the variety of characters and scenes you and your teammates have played, will play, and how to toggle back and forth between them.
We will also explore characters, in relationship to one another, object work, and the fundamentals of good scenes, which are essential to The Spokane, and any other form you work on.
In the evening all the participants will have a chance to show what theyve learnt on stage.
Be prepared for some fun, funny high energy play!
Price: 1500 rubles
Date & Time: June 30 at 13:00-16:00
Venue: Большой Златоустинский переулок 7/1
