This is a class for advanced improvisers who want to study long-form improv at BATS and challenge themselves with multiple narratives weaving through the show. Students will learn how to spontaneously create characters, environments and narrative based on multiple genres, and the transitions that will allow the cast to move seamlessly from story to story. The use of traditional transitions, cinematic tools and TFM’s unique way of dropping from one story to the next will be practiced.
We’ll end with either one or two shows, depending on the amount of students who register.
