Form No. 56


Improvisational forms and exercises introduce specific restrictions to performance and within that restriction, the improvisor is forced to make creative choices to execute or even transcend that particular form/exercise.  Most forms introduce restrictions to gain a particular result, and many forms are transparent to an audience.  This class will explore different imposed restrictions, some purposeful and some arbitrary to create a seemingly random set of restrictions with the desired outcome of a full formed show.  The question we will be exploring is whether or not the form itself matters, or if it's simply the struggle against restrictions that makes for interesting performance.  We will be performing Form No. 56.  We will work co-operatively to figure out what the hell Form No. 56 is.


Students must be accepted into the Advanced Study Program and have completed an Advanced Study Harold or Advanced Study Improv course to apply for a spot in this class. For more information on Advanced Study, see this page: http://newyork.ucbtheatre.com/classes/advanced

On the improv side, he performed in "Key Party" and with the Harold teams "Still Mike," "The Pox," and "Salmon Diane."  He currently performs on the house team "The Stepfathers."

Jordan also spent a good chunk of time in Chicago where he was an original member of the long running shows "Whirled News Tonight," "The Late Night Late Show," as well as the "Beatbox." At the i.O. Theatre he played regularly with "The Armando Diaz Experience," veteran Harold team (and Del Close Award Winning Best Harold Team) "Carl and the Passions" and "Bullet Lounge."
