It Takes Two - Improvising as a Duo

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

This workshop looks at creating a complete improv show (or set) with a cast of two. It is the second workshop in a 3-workshop weekend with Claudia Pantani (Italy).

About the workshop

Improv as a duo can feel hard, especially without the help of a director or side coach. In this workshop, we will explore some of the tools that I have myself discovered on my journey to my first “duo-prov” experience.

Long-form for two often employs different tools from the ones used by larger improv teams. As a result, as duos, we are sometimes left to our own devices and need to undergo a process of trial and error. In this workshop, we will explore experimental ways of telling a compelling story without the aid of external edits and side coaching. Using time jumps as a supportive narrative tool, we will also allow the topography of the stage to inform our characters and relationships as we discover them

Who it's for

This event is for performers who already have some improvisation training / experience.
