Time & Location
About The Event
A class for both beginners and experienced improvisers, this highly active workshop will break your brains while heightening your awareness of some of the dusty old habits we all fall into as improvisers. Learn to unleash your subconscious playful brain, push through "brain freeze", and discover pattern behavior you might not even know you were doing! Workshop focuses on active and immediate scene play and personalized notes.
