This is the second term of our five-term improvisation curriculum. The exercises reinforce first-term principles (living in the now) while helping you explore your character's past and future. Players discover the power of "showing" vs. "telling" behavior, and how to explore an offstage story. You'll learn how to navigate dramatic levels and theatrical devices such as split scenes and strange interludes. Character work tends to be two-dimensional in this 8-class term.

Learning Environment Commitment
Players Workshop is dedicated to creating a safe, non-judgmental learning environment for our students and teachers. If you're doing it right, you'll find out some truths about yourself and the world at large that may surprise you. This can lead to feeling vulnerable, which is why we maintain a safe space for students to work in. We steadfastly believe in creating a space of unconditional and universal acceptance for everyone as they choose to define themselves. However, we will enforce a zero tolerance for exclusionary or threatening behavior (physical or verbal) of any kind.
Basically, be nice. We're all just astronauts on a rock that's floating through space...so be nice!
