Improv is acting without a script. This workshop will be an introduction to the skills and approaches to make that happen, and will cover the games and exercises to get you started in "making it up". We'll embrace the spirit of trying and celebrate failure, all in service of performance. A useful tool when your mind goes blank, you forget your lines or when an impromptu arise on stage.
