“It was utterly riveting. Genuinely loved every second of it.”
It’s just you and me, kid.
Twoprov, or duo shows are simply shows with two improvisers in. It’s as simple and as complex as that. Ranging from the Two-man Movie, to Bassprov, the art of a duo is to create a show that is so personal to the two of you that no one else could ever have made it.There is no one else to please and no one else to satisfy.
In this course,you will examine skills including how to play multiple characters in a single scene, edit from within and build a show without any time in the wings to take stock of what’s happening. You will also examine how to warm up and rehearse as a duo, as well as how to feedback and improve your shows without a director and while keeping a light, friendly atmosphere in the rehearsal room.
In this course, you will examine how to make a show where there’s just you and your buddy to rely on. Where you are all you have to rely on. You will work to discover new ways of playing that are specific to the two of you and form them into a show which is specific to you.
