Event Details

Level: Intermediate

This six-week masterclass will help you begin your scenes off with confidence, certainty, and clarity. Learn how to take your improv to surprising places by simply recognizing you and your partner’s points of view. This class will also be focusing on Viewpoints, a skill set that frees you from using your brain, worrying about what’s right or wrong, what’s good or bad. Instead of thinking about what you’re supposed to do, scenic choices are made with your heart, not your head. Learn to base your responses on compulsion (“an irresistible urge to act a certain way”) rather than worry about what might be interesting, funny, original, or dramatic.

This workshop will change the way you look at your practice.

Min. participants 6, max. participants 8. If we have to cancel the event due to low numbers, we will do this with 24 hours notice.

Teacher

David Razowsky: From his 10 revues at Chicago’s Second City performing with the likes of Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Amy Sedaris, and Rachel Dratch, to the 10 years he spent as Artistic Director of The Second City Hollywood, to the countless worldwide workshops and performances he’s engaged in, to his TEDx Talk, “Life: The Product is the Process,” David has developed a simple approach to improvising: Your present awareness is the only thing you need to create compelling, smart, truthful, and surprising scenes. Period. No games, no preconceived premises, no ideas, no ego. All that matters is now. The actor’s level of improvisation experience doesn’t matter, for all you’ll need to bring to this workshop is your present presence. All you’ll leave with is your joy and excitement and confidence. And after all, what more do you need?
