Simplifying Game with Alex Fernie
People seem to be really scared about the idea of "playing the game." This workshop will focus on demystifying that term and helping you play scenes that play game in real, honest and fun way. We'll cover creating fun and clear games in scenes, ways to heighten that are interesting and surprising, and support from the back line. If you feel terrified every time your coach asks "so, what was the game there", we can work on that!

Prerequisite: Improv 201

Class meets in Room #222

There are no refunds for this course.
