Own Your Weird

In this workshop we will drill the mechanics of framing and justifying the game of the scene. We will seek to use those tools to build character-based games that are supported by a strong point of view that fully acknowledges the absurdity of the "weird" character's behavior. The goal by the end of this workshop is to feel like you can take charge of the game quickly whether you are the unusual character or the "straight man".

Prerequisite: Successful Completion of Improv 201
