This 8-week workshop, the third in our Performance Series, prepares you for your first
Long-Form performance in front of an audience by breaking down and covering these different core elements of performance:

  • Taking your time and paying attention
  • Narrative, and establishing a strong foundation
  • Acting
  • Improvising in genre
  • Transitions between scenes
  • Ensemble acting
  • Building locations and maintaining a space object world

This class will qualify you to be considered for more advanced work as it will give you a grounding in the essential elements of Long-Form improvisation as BATS practices it.
