The name of the game in Foundation 6 is getting performance ready with a specific, well-researched genre. At the end of this 6-week course, the ensemble will present multiple performances to invited audiences of a genre and format that they research and rehearse together.
In F6 improvisers will learn:
- How to approach a genre with an eye to playing it truthfully and faithfully.
- The unique skills and nuances of a particular genre and how to recreate the tone of a genre with improvised stories.
- The ways that performing can change the energy of improvisers and improvisation in the safety of workshop performances.
At the end of Foundation 6, the coach will make a recommendation for each student about their next step — repeating Foundation 6, going to the Improv Gym to hone specific skills, or moving to the Ongoing Performance Lab to start the improviser’s performance journey.
