Upcoming Special Workshops & Classes

Aggressive Grounding w/ Barry Hite

When: Tuesday, Nov. 25th, 7-9pm
Instructor: Barry hite
Cost: $35
Prerequisites: Some kind of improv experience required.
Email us if you have any questions.

Are your strong character choices adding a great initial spark to your scenework but then causing your scenes to spiral out of control?

Are your ‘grounded’ scenes just two people standing still and talking?

Are you boring yourself with the same old choices?

This 2+ hour intensive is designed to help performers make strong, honest choices that are startlingly simple and fun. The focus of this workshop will be 2 person scenes but the principles are applicable to all scenes. Longform, shortform – all performers will find lessons that they can apply to their field.
