About The Course

Your experienced instructor will guide students through the basics of a two-person, virtual improv scene through hands-on exercises. Scenic techniques include mirroring & leaning into emotion, exploring wants & status, and playing the beats of a scene through the beginning, middle & end. Building on these two-person exercises, we focus on adding a third player through the strategies of purposeful entrances & exits and the giving & taking of focus. The class culminates in the performance of fully-realized improvised one-act plays by utilizing playwriting techniques on the fly, including identifying lead & supporting characters and communicating act structure.
