Jeff Wirth (5 Days)
Improvisation can be easy. You don’t have to be funny or quick-witted to be a great improvisor. Improvisation can become a tool to explore character, develop backstory, and discover the unexpected within the characters you play…and within yourself. Master instructor Jeff Wirth introduces an approach to improvisational acting that is based on tools, not rules, freeing performers to unleash their natural spontaneous ability. Recapture your playful spirit and discover how easy and fun it can be to play!
What you will learn:
- how to bypass the brain and access your “impulse response”
- the secret tool of “instant character”
- the structural components of improvised story
- how to get rid of the “editor” in your head
- pedagogical approaches for teaching improvisation as an acting skill
This class is open to performers and teachers of all experience levels.
