Event Details

Multi-paced scenes, bizarre yet believable and grounded characters, ensemble storytelling that will chill and delight your bones: this Improvised Coen Brothers’ workshop will oscillate from the frothy scene-work to intense character study and back again all within the safe confines of a Summer Improv Workshop.

Whether or not you’re familiar with the directors’ impressive filmography, this workshop will engage you in slow-play while helping to spackle your dialogue with the scene detail you didn’t know you had in you…
