This is a super-charged, slam-dunk laboratory where performers can get down to the nitty-gritty of what it means to "take the stage" and PLAY. Students will be introduced to techniques from the Lecoq and Gaulier schools of Physical Comedy and Movement. Teacher Sabrina Mandell is the artistic director of Happenstance Theater, devoted to unique devised works of physical storytelling.
Improvisation is not about being funny; it’s about being true. This beginning level course will help students learn to trust their creative instincts, improve listening skills and hone their connections through the art of Improv. A safe and supportive classroom environment will allow students to take the improv exercises and create dynamic and committed work. For the local professional looking to enhance his or her skill set, for those brand new to theatre and for any person needing to let go, live in the moment and deepen daily interactions. Company member Bruce R. Nelson, who was recently featured on the Everyman stage in August: Osage County, will teach this summer favorite.
With the skills learned in Improv I, this second level course will continue to help students hone their creative instincts while emphasizing the importance of forming a team bond. A safe and supportive classroom environment will allow students to detail their characterizations and more fully commit to their space work when establishing mimed stage locations and activities. Scene structure will be practiced in a way that emphasizes working with your partner, developing conflict, and finding a resolution. Constructive criticism will be encouraged as will open give and take about making scenes stronger, not necessarily funnier. Verbal and non-verbal listening will be fine-tuned as will letting go and living in the improvised moment.
All classes will be held at Everyman Theatre, 315 West Fayette Street, Baltimore, MD 21201
