David Razowsky
„Improv Duo Workshop”
Wed 07th of November 5 p.m. — 9 p.m.
David will lead a duo drop-in class. Students will join with partners they currently work with or partners they’d like to work with and, with Razowsky’s direction, will focus the duos toward finding their collective voice, or honing their duo’s voice.
Level: Semi Advanced — over 2 years of experience

Jonathan Pitts
„Scene Work: The Chicago Way”
Wed 07th of November 5 p.m. — 9 p.m.
Chicago is famous for grounded, honest, relationship-based improvisation scene work that produces deep laughs and deep sighs as the audience is moved to both. This style of work requires acting, listening, openness, patience, and responding through a shared process of give and take. This workshop will feature a deep dive into this process of two-person scene work that will bring improvisers discovery upon discovery. As those shared discoveries pile up, the improvised scene becomes deep, full and funny. It's the Chicago way.
Level: Advanced — over 4 years of experience

8.11 — THURSDAY

David Razowsky
„Strong Entrances, Strong Choices”
Thu 08th of November 5 p.m. — 9 p.m.
Be aware of all that’s happening at the top of your scene and you’ll be aware of the power you have in your character. It starts as all things do: at the beginning!
Level: Semi Advanced — over 2 years of experience

Jonathan Pitts
„The Organic Harold” — part 1
Thu 08th of November 5 p.m. — 9 p.m.
When Del Close originally created the Harold, he did so in San Francisco in the late 60's and then he further refined it in Chicago in the mid-70's to early '80's. The style of the Harold that Del did then is now called «The Organic Harold» which featured a looser and freer structure that explored in depth the suggestion given by the audience than the now traditional Opening/3 scenes/game/3 scenes/game/3 scenes/Wrap up style of Harold that has been written about in books. Jonathan Pitts studied with Del Close 3 times, each time for a year. From Del he learned how to perform The Organic Harold as well as the early origins of group mind. In this ensemble based workshop, theimprovisers will get to experience the Harold as Del originally created it in its first 10 years as the students will learn to recognize and incorporate organic patterns that come from exploring the suggestion intuitively. In a world of Harolds, the original version was more like small batch hand crafted beer, made one Harold at a time, by improv artisans.

David Razowsky
„Finding the «Game in the Scene» and the «Scene at the End of The Game in the Scene””
Fri 9th of November 12.00 — 16.00.
Each scene has a wonderful nugget in it. Some call it “The Game.” Find that game, then learn what to do once the game is played. After all, why are you abandoning the scene once your “game” is over? Hey, THAT’S WHERE THE FUN LIVES! Play the game, then stay for the wonderful surprises that come after.

Heather Urquhart
“Gettting emotional”
Fri 9th of November 12.00 — 16.00
In scenes or shows when the inner critic takes over and we try to reach for the 'best' or 'cleverest' idea, it's often because we have disconnected from the emotional relationship with our scene partner and even sometimes from our own character choice. In this workshop we will explore different techniques to improve our emotional literacy onstage, practice reacting from our gut rather than our head and remind ourselves to play the full spectrum of the emotional rainbow onstage. The result could be moving or hilarious but it will be emotional!
Level: Semi Advanced — over 2 years of experience

Jules Munns
“Adding petrol to the fire — Noticing when a scene can change and making it happen fast”
Fri 9th of November 12.00 — 16.00
We have all felt the horrible, heavy feeling of a scene starting to sag. Where before there was fluidity and ease, now suddenly nothing is landing and the more we put in, the less comes out. It’s a frustrating, unsettling experience.
When a scene starts to die, it’s often because we have failed to notice that something has changed. The scene is no longer where it was before, and we are desperately pretending that it is, holding onto an idea which is not helping us.
In this workshop, you will deepen your ability to notice where a change has come and how to, without forcing it, embrace that change as fast and as cleanly as possible, delighting the audience and your partner with your dexterity and responsiveness.

David Razowsky
”A Day Dedicated to “You”! — part 1
Sat 11th of November 10 a.m. — 2 p.m.
The focus of this master class is to get the actor to set aside all of the unnecessary elements of improv training and replace them with a life-changing awareness of “You being on stage with you.”
The most important person on stage is YOU. YOU get to notice what happens, YOU get to be aware of what’s inspiring you, YOU get to follow what energizes you, and YOU get to celebrate the surprises that YOU create.
With the full-day YOU masterclass you’ll enter the world of personal awareness and presentness, of the excitement of knowing what to do the moment the moment arrives! YOU are in charge, and this workshop will be a study of--and a practice of--you connecting to you. YOU are the boss of YOU.
The “YOU” “takeaways” will include:
--Owning calm self-awareness at the beginning of your scenes immediately leading you to strong points-of-view.
--Letting go, moving on. The beat feels like it’s over…now what? You will always know what’s the “now” about your scene.
This will all lead up to you being a strong, confident, courageous actor, producing scenes that will most surprise…you.
Level: Professional — over 6 years of experience

Jonathan Pitts
„Taking Care of the „Now“ ”
Sat 11th of November 10 a.m. — 2 p.m.
If you take care of the „now“ in any improv scene, the future always shows up as a great scene. If you don't take care of the „now“, the future never shows up and the scene spins into quicksand. Using a deeply intuitive scenic process learned from the late Martin DeMatt, one that focuses on listening and responding, the students learn how to take care of the „now“ by becoming fully invested in it. They also learn how to let go of worries about where the scene is going and instead learn to understand where the scene is right now.
Level: Advanced — over 4 years of experience

Heather Urquhart
»Sing when you're scared"
Sat 10th of November 10 a.m. — 2 p.m.
It is said that people rate the fear of singing in public higher than the fear of dying! In this workshop we will play very gently and remove all the fear associated with musical improvisation. Starting with group exercises and easy games and working up to improvising full songs and scenes into song we will also explore different techniques for just opening your mouth and making music happen. You cannot be out of tune or rhythm when we are creating the music together in the moment so If you have always wanted to try musical improv but have been too scared then this is the class for you.
Level: Semi Advanced — over 2 years of experience

Jules Munns
“Just be you — Using your self and being yourself”
Sat 10th of November 10 a.m. — 2 p.m.
Sometimes doing nothing can be the hardest thing. We want to act, to emote, to create an eccentric character in a bizarre scenario or a complex game. We feel the responsibility to do something, pull our weight, demonstrate our value.
But what if we just didn’t? What if we just did nothing and existed, as humans, on the stage? What if that were enough? In this workshop, you will play scenes that start from nothing where the emotional depth and connection between the players provides everything necessary for explosive, tender improvisation. The kind of scenes which intrigue and draw the audience in, not because of what is there, but because of what isn’t, stimulating their minds to fill in the gaps. Let’s stop working and just see what happens.
Level: Semi Advanced — over 2 years of experience

“Improvised Musicals”
Sun 11th of November 10 a.m.- 2 p.m.
Have you always dreamed that your life was a musical? Let your dreams come true in this workshop. We will look at the first steps for creating a full choreographed narrative musical that just happens to be made up on the spot. There will be exploration of song structures both as full company and for trios, duets and solos. Expect opening numbers, showstopping dance breaks and diva like solo moments. As well as this we will look at classic musical archetypes and how we can improvise them in style, with jazz hands.
Level: Semi Advanced — over 2 years of experience

Jules Munns
“Break it — Group physicality and the larger game”
Sun 11th of November 10 a.m.- 2 p.m.
From a haka to a ceilidh to the macarena, humans love both to move in unison and watch others move in unison. It binds and bonds us. As you lose yourself in the activity, it creates and nurtures a temporary community where we move together, think together and create together. It turns a bunch of individuals into a team.
In this workshop, you will work on ‘yes and’ on a larger scale, experimenting with how scenes and group movement emerge naturally from each other. You will explore the rhythm of chaos and order, of individual and collective that make up organic freeform improvisation. With your team, you will create a collective instinct which frees individuals from the responsibility of thought. Scenes, movement and sound will flow easily and fluidly out of each other, creating a surreal and unstable landscape, defined and sustained by the collective awareness of the group.
Level: Advanced — over 4 years of experience

David Razowsky’s approach to improvisation:

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 need to bring to my 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?”
