KROMPF with Amey Goerlich
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 sharpen your improv skills with fast, bold choices that help you create the ultimate ensemble improv piece.
