Improv Is Feelings!

A lot of time, we get so focused on intellectualizing the game and making the "right" comedic choice, that we forget that we are creating theater. And creating theater means playing characters who FEEL. This class will work on all the pieces that make up a successful Harold with a focus on identifying and staying specific about emotions and how that informs the behavior around our games.

Note: Does not meet September 20. Meets October 11, Friday of a holiday weekend. Check calendar before enrolling.
