All exercises are designed to:
  • Encourage spontaneity
  • Foster real human behavior
  • Help the actor become more sensitive, imaginative, responsive, and alive onstage
  • Relax the actor
  • Change the work effortlessly and invisibly (so the audience won’t detect any effort on the actor’s part and therefore will feel like they are watching a real person rather than an actor “working”)
  • Bring more freedom to the work

  • Introduction
  • Review syllabus
  • Theatre / Improv games
Week 2:
  • Script Analysis/Story Structure
Week 3:
