i201: THE MARRIAGE OF CHARACTER & RELATIONSHIP
About this class: In this six-week course, students will explore why character is essential to good improv, and how to bring new, full-color personalities to life through improvisation. You'll also discover how character-work and relationship go hand-in-hand to produce scenes that are memorable, honest, and entertaining.
The next i201 session begins in January 2018.
PATTERNS, SHAPES, AND GAMES
About this class: Once we can construct a stable scene using the foundation elements learned in i101 and i201, we're able to build more advanced structures on top of it. i301 explores simple scene identification, heightening, and game in a way that clarifies the path to creating hilarious and sustainable work.
The next i301 session begins Thursday, November 9th, 2017.
i401: GETTING TO KNOW HAROLD
About this class: In this level, you'll apply all of your existing training as you explore the dynamic and classic long form structure, The Harold.
By discovering how The Harold lives and breathes, we'll learn valuable tools to help identify theme, heighten Games, and achieve group mind. The class culminates in a presentation of The Harold during a student performance.
i401 culminates with a class performance, and the next i401 session begins Wednesday, November 8th, 2017.
NEXT LEVEL SCENE & FORM
(Enrolling Jan. 2018)
About this class: After completing i401, iSeries students have already developed a diverse set of skills and have found success putting those skills to use. In i501: Next Level Scene & Form, you'll learn more advanced techniques and forms that focus on improving all aspects of your work.
We'll explore new ideas that stretch our knowledge of Game and how to apply it to nearly all of the work that we do. We'll learn about tempo and pacing, and expand our understanding of character. Now that you have more experience under your belt, we'll revisit risk, fear, and failure to push yourself into new areas of growth.
i501 culminates with a class performance, and begins January 2018.
