Improv Workshop with imKubik!

10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Let Your Body Free, Let Your Voice Free  with Rafael Haldenwang, David Wüthrich, and Vlado Salji of Imkubik 

Together we explore our bodies, their possibilities, and limits. Who is my body? How to make it speak and to make ourselves listen. Emotions move us deep inside, but very little reaches the surface. We can release more of our inner movement with our bodies and our voice without using actual words. We can be so inspired by our body if we just let it follow it’s impulses. From movement evolves characters, who then create stories.  In this Workshop, we train the ability to perform without using language by using your body and voice very instinctively. Be in connection with yourself, and with your partner to act and react. Click the Title above to register!

Oct 19

Solo Comedic Performance - with Jake Goldman

10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Solo, comedic performance can be terrifying, but it can also be thrilling. If you’ve ever had the desire to write and perform a piece for yourself or even write a full-blown, one-person show, this is the class for you. Over the course of 8 weeks, we will write, workshop, and ultimately perform solo pieces. Whether it’s storytelling, sketch comedy, character work, short plays or something else altogether, each student will leave the class with a fully realized 5-10 minute, heavily work-shopped and polished piece to perform. While we will run through exercises each week that focus on sharpening performance techniques, the class will be heavily geared towards the writing and performance of each individual piece. We will go through the iterative process of writing an outline, then a script, and then taking it to the stage for feedback from both the instructor and your fellow classmates. The class will be capped off with a showcase open to the public, at which students will perform their pieces in their final forms.
