Organic Group Work

Improv is all about collaborative building. When we are able to tap into our collective group mind we are able to find new areas of exploration and discovery and create fun worlds and ideas that surprise us.

What do you think of when you hear organic improv? Is it the same old sound and movement equipped with all the same standard moves?

Let’s break out of the structures we feel bound to so that we can build our own. This class will strive to get everyone ready to jump on board whatever is going on at any given time and ultimately allow the group to build out their own form on the spot creating the philosophy of the set based on the single suggestion.

Instructor Bio: Rob has been studying, performing and coaching improv since 2006. He completed the basic improv program at Second City Toronto before studying long form at the Impatient Theatre Co. where he was a house team performer for three years. In 2012, he moved to New York City and quickly completed all of the core levels at the Upright Citizens Brigade. He was a house team player for the 10,000 Hours Program for a year and performs often with his indie team, Knife Sandwich as well as his twoprov team Spig & Spenser.

Class Description

Transform yourself into someone else! This class combines improv, theater games, and writing to develop three-dimensional, funny, real characters using your face, voice, and body. By the end of the class you will have at least one fully formed character or impressions piece or both, while generating several to chose from. The class can also serve as a gym to hone your established characters/impressions. Bring in your observations, your impressions, or just yourself, because in this class you will learn that “just you” is so much more!

JAMES III has been seen on Funny Or Die, NBC’s Law & Order: SVU, Converse and ESPN commercials, and written for CollegeHumor and Splitsider. He performs comedy all over New York City and can be seen regularly on the UCB sketch house team, Moriarty, and at The PIT on the improv team, Student Driver, and as co-host of HUMP DAY! Stand Up Open Mic. This year, James is touring New York, Maine, Vermont, and Ohio with his solo show, Junior.

James has taught classes and workshops at Bennington College, Brooklyn College Hillel, 10,000 Hours Improv, Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, Student Television and Arts Company at Herricks High School, Miller South School for the Arts, Harvey S. Firestone High School, and St. Charles Jubilee Senior Center.

Krompf April/May Saturdays 3-6pm – 2 SPOTS LEFT

KROMPF

Learning the krompf form will help you with finding and stripping down a game to play in your scene quickly and efficiently. The KROMPF also helps with the idea of connecting games within an improvised piece and melding them together. Hone your acceptance skills and acting commitment and conviction. Remove judgment from your improv and work on the best ‘you’ as an improviser. Lots of play time, small class size, personal notes. This class explores all things improv that will help to better understand how you play as an improviser and a krompher.
