About the Workshop: Controlled Chaos

Many improv scenes and sets can be “technically correct” yet still somehow suffer from not being dynamic enough. This workshop will focus on methods to introduce a little bit of chaos into your scene work, making unexpected and bold choices that keep the improviser ahead of the audience, and fostering a greater sense of play. It’s important to be able to stay on the rails, but it’s also important to jump out of the cart and fall down the mountain every now and again.
