The Evente taught by Achilles Stamatelaky
The Evente is a form where the first scene is the last scene. The first scene establish a high stakes, life-altering event. In the scenes afterwards, we flash back and flash forward, expanding the world and exploring the characters we met in that event. Finally, we return to the first scene again -- in the meantime creating a high stakes, life-altering, and HILARIOUS improv show.
The Evente was developed by Armando Diaz, pioneered by the legendary UCB team Respecto Montalban, and is currently performed by Airwolf.
