 This course introduces students to the long form improvisation structure known as "The Harold," developed by Del Close.

"The Harold" is a series of scenes inspired by a single suggestion that fit together into one cohesive half hour piece. Students learn how to 1) perform openings, 2) create scenes inspired by an opening 3) perform "group games," 4) second and third beats (returning to scenes later in the piece).

Course meets for 8 sessions, each 3 hours long.

Students will take part in a class performance, generally held at the UCB Theatre.

Chelsea Clarke, teacher

Chelsea is a performer and teacher at UCB Theater. She is a native of New York, but spent a fair amount of time living in south Florida, as all New Yorkers must. You can see her performing improv every week on Saturday nights with The Curfew, and Monday nights with Improv Nerds. If you had a time machine, you could go back in time and see her perform with Bombardo, Tantrum, fwand, Bangs, Badman and Reuben Williams. Set that same machine for the future and you can see her perform with her all lady prison improv team Parolling in the Aisles.
