Improv 401 serves as the end official "end" of our improv program. This course offers students the chance to strengthen their individual skills while giving them more practice with the long form improvisation performance known as the Harold.
The course focuses on playing truthfully, to the top of your intelligence, while practicing agreement and support. Students will be sensitive to the games of their scenes, and connect the scenes into one cohsive piece (the "Harold").
Teachers will offer more individual feedback at this level.
Course meets for 8 sessions, each 3 hours long.
Students will take part in at least two class performances, generally held at the UCB Theatre.
Students required to see at least 2 improvised shows at the UCB Theater before the end of the course.
