Event Description

Workshop & Performance with UCB Instructor

We will work on two forms during a three-hour workshop. First, we will work on a montage of scenes focused on commitment, acting, and top-of-your-intelligence play. Then, we will collaborate on a monoscene centered around an improvised Thanksgiving Dinner. If one Thanksgiving with your family just isn't enough for you, then sit down around our table and work on building interesting characters, labeling and gifting your scene partner, and unraveling the best and worst parts of this thing we call "family".

Our workshop culminates in a thirty minute 8:00 PM Arcade Comedy mainstage show that will use the forms that we built together during class.
