Comedia Del Improv is an intensive introduction designed to empower improvisers and actors with the 400 year old traditions of comedia del arte. This two part workshop will introduce players to historic movement, emotions, and characters techniques to enhance your contemporary improv.
Students will be introduced to the playing style that was popular during the Renaissance and Elizabethan age which brought to life some of the most iconic stories of the stage. This workshop is for anyone who has ever wanted to expand their skills in physicality, character work, emotional awareness, genre, or simply has an appreciation of improv history. This workshop will meet twice in January for three hours. Both classes will be guided by Jake Schneider and a fellow member of The Improv Shop faculty.
This workshop will meet for two 3-hour sessions on Saturdays, January 13th and 27th from 11am-2pm in mainstage at The Improv Shop.
