Looking at the Commedia del’arte tradition and finding fresh permutations on the great comedic constructs. Over the years I have collected a bevy of scene conceits that can be improvised over and over with a side effect of building skills of timing, problem solving, character clarity and witness work. This course will take a journey through these conceits and do team creation exercises to discover the groups own/new lazzis will also be used to see if we find our own new classic.
Participation fee: €35 for 3h of workshop.
Basic improv experience is required.
Maximum 12 participants.
