Improv for Life
A well-grounded class in the art of improvisation. Although improv is commonly thought of as being synonymous with comedy, this is not a class about telling jokes or being clever. Instead, you'll be learning to trust your impulses and create cooperatively as we explore what it means to be human. That experience is part comedy, part drama... and a lot of fun.
Our class offers our take on the art of improv. In our scenes we give honest responses to behavior, and attention is continually directed onto the human being you're working with rather than on going into your head for ideas. Students move quickly beyond the basics of most improv classes into more traditional improvised scene work, although that work is deeper and more truthful than what you'll see on most improv stages.
The class is also appropriate for artists of other disciplines, non-performers (such as writers), or anyone who has the desire to have some fun, break out of a rut and acquire some useful skills.
As in all Open Mind classes, you can expect a fun, challenging, positive, and supportive atmosphere.
