$50 per day OR $90 for both days
See how you can strip down the game of the scene to its bare bones and broaden its possibilities. Take the mystery out of what ‘the funny’ of the scene is and know what it is. With these game skills you’ll start to make magical connections that help you create the ultimate ensemble improv piece.
We encourage performers to sign up for both, but here is a breakdown of what will be taught in each workshop:
PART ONE: Strip Down The Game
$50 (Sat. April 8th – 11am-2pm)
Part one is an introduction to UCB’s game. It’s ideal for novice improvisors but also a great opportunity for more experienced improvisors to break down the basics.
PART TWO: Executing the KROMPF
$50 (Sun. April 9th – 11am-2pm)
People who have a good grasp on game can just take the part 2 or if they have taken a workshop with Amey before. Advanced players should have no problem.
