Venue: Banko Gallery

Saturday, January 26 | 10:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m.

Being able to take the stand out parts of an interview or monologue and create improvised scenes that explore and heighten the subject matter, no matter how serious, is definitely a skill. Astronomy Club strongly utilizes this technique in their weekly show, and members Monique Moses, Keisha Zollar and Ray Cordova are here to take students through a crash course in their approach.

In this workshop, students will use concepts of longform improv - agreement, point of view, framing behavior, listening and support - to craft scenes that enrich a funny, interesting or poignant idea, rather than just comment on it.

Students must be 18 or older on the day of the workshop.
