For students who have done some shortform and now want to dip their toes into the deep waters of longform! Learn the ins and outs of longform in this class designed for the improviser who is new to creating longer narratives. This class promises to be fun and engaging while introducing the skills you need to create a dynamic story as an ensemble. Some of what we’ll explore:

  • Learn theatrical techniques like Meisner and apply them to improv.
  • Develop deeper characters and sustain them in a longer narrative
  • Use genre to make the stories specific and compelling.

Work with long time pros Zoe and John to tap into your storytelling skills. The class culminates in a showcase demonstrating the broad array of skills necessary for a LongForm Narrative.
