The Six Questions (2023-2)

Saturday, March 25
Doors: 12pm // Show: 12pm

Pre-requisite: Third Coast Level 2: Scenework

Improvisers, have you ever come off stage and said– “Great scene, WHO were we?” Or, “Great scene, WHERE were we?” Like any other narrative form of story telling, improvisers need to be able to answer ALL the questions of the scene and performance. WHERE? WHO? WHAT? HOW? WHY? WHEN? Crucial questions in storytelling. Often one or more of these important questions can be left unaddressed in an improv performance. This is a class Rich has been teaching for many years in LA, NY, CHICAGO and around the US. Learn how Improvisers play WHERE (object work), WHO (point of view and character), WHAT (games or playable dynamics), HOW & WHY (the gift-givers) and WHEN (dealing with time, linear and shattered narrative). 

Join Rich Talarico a 30 year improv vet and alumnus of The Second City and Improv Olympic, as he leads this workshop that will leave you with many tools to create organic characters and worlds instantly.
