The Brick presents
Improv for Theater Artists (And Other Artists too, I guess)
with Tim Platt
3 Sessions – March 5, 12, 19, 2023
at Brick Aux – 628 Metropolitan
Improvisation has been and continues to be one the most creatively nourishing and generative practices of my life. And yet, to be totally honest, one of the biggest bummers of the practice is how siloed improvisation is from those who have creative goals outside of “being good at improv.” This three session class is an opportunity for theater makers, actors, writers, artists, and comedians to develop improvisation technique in a way that aligns with their current creative goals and projects. Along with building comfort and familiarity with improvisation as a craft and form, we will also experiment with how improvisation can directly integrate with your individual discipline and practice. Come ready to play, listen, share, and develop.
