David Razowsky has been traveling all over the world working with actors on a very specific type of impro: Mindful, fully-aware, Present Presence work. Razowsky’s focus creates real scenes in real time, organic discoveries, surprising turns, and satisfying true moments.
With Each Other, For Each Other: The Art of the Ensemble is a weeklong intensive that focuses on all things ensemble: support, heightening, surrendering, and selfless play. What does the scene want from you? How can you best listen to and support whats already there? When does a scene need your help, and when does a scene need your absence? Invest fully, wholly, and be aware of what you need to offer and when.
The actor’s take away will include:
- A clear understanding of the dynamics of a scene.
- How a successful scene starts, develops, evolves, and to recognize when the perfect edit arrives.
- Effectively using tag outs, callbacks and other scenic devices in order to explore all avenues of the scene.
This intensive will culminate in an ensemble performance on Saturday evening.
The week runs 21st to 25th October, 10.30am to 5pm. Maximum class size is 16 and often sell out, so book early to avoid disappointment.
PLEASE NOTE This week is only open to those who have worked with David Razowsky before – if you have not, then please book onto the ‘Putting It All Together’ course instead.

David Razowsky has a very simple approach to strong impro scenes: Your presence is the only thing you need to create compelling, smart, truthful, and surprising scenes. Period. No games, no preconceived premises, no ideas, no ego. Just now matters. It’s what has inspired many to call him an “impro guru.” Your level of experience doesn’t matter.
