Commit!

In this 4-hour intensive, improvisers will explore what it means to commit to everything, from an entire show, down to a single moment. Improvisers will learn what walls they build (intentionally or otherwise) in order to feel safe on stage, and how relying on audience laughter can negatively impact our work.

By learning to commit to your scenework choices wholeheartedly, you won’t need to tear down your walls, but rather, you'll learn to climb them, sit atop them, and enjoy the view.


One-Day Intensive (4 hrs):

  • Sunday July 29th, 2018 from 10am-2pm

$50 (+GST)
@ Intrepid Theatre Club (1609 Blanshard St)
Instructor: Scott Thompson
