THE ABSURDITY OF IMPROV w/ James Quesada

Improv is absurd. The challenge is to correctly pretend to be someone else while accurately engaging with the environment that isn’t there. It can become a very serious business. Don’t let it! In this workshop we’ll charge ourselves with impossible tasks and play in scenes full of booby traps. Together we’ll destroy our expectations of getting it right and rediscover the fun in The Absurdity of Improv.

Date & Time: Monday, May 8th – 6:30pm-9:30pm

Cost: $30

Location: Torch Theatre Annex

Prerequisite: Level 1 Completion or Equivelant
