Improv Theater Workshop with Ben Taylor

Saturday April 27 * 4:30 - 6:30pm * $5 * RSVP

Improvisational theater allows for the squeezing of beauty and humor from the normal, grounded interactions we have every single day. In this fun, entry-level, and low-stakes workshop, learn some techniques and exercises that deal with reciprocal language and action in spontaneous, improvised scene work. We'll explore sharing deeper, more revealing, and novel information on the spot in order to make rich, multidimensional characters for more captivating storytelling. Let’s build the best world possible, one scene at a time.

Class format: The class will last two hours and will include some vocal, physical and mental warm ups, an introduction to improvised theater, and guided exercises to help us listen to and build honest and amazing scenes with our scene-partners. We will do more playing than talking, but there will be plenty of time for discussion and questions throughout the workshop.

No prior performance experience of any kind is necessary. This workshop is open to people of all ages and abilities. Come dressed for comfort and movement.

About the teacher: Ben Taylor is from Albuquerque, New Mexico and has been improvising since 2008. He has been teaching improv since 2010, and it is one of his all-time favorite things to do on planet Earth, just behind eating.
