Two of the most powerful yet challenging areas in Improvisation are Stage Combat and Intimacy. Since we are the director, actor and choreographer simultaneously when improvising, our protective instincts can make us back away from the very moments that would knock the socks off the audience. Practice pushing into these areas with confidence, awareness and skill. What makes a gun fight work? What types of romantic scenes have the audience on the edge of their seat? This class provides powerful tools for making Improvisation a more commanding form of art.
