Level 5: Pro Tools For Performers
You've got the foundations for great scene work, now let's get you the doing great SHOW work – tools to shine on any stage!
WHEN AND WHERE
05 Oct 2021, 6:00 pm NZDT – 30 Nov 2021, 9:00 pm NZDT
Wellington, 12 King Street, Mount Cook, Wellington 6021, New Zealand
NOTE: No matter the Covid level, the Workouts are definitely on. If we can't meet in person, we do it online. While in-person and online are different, the connections, sponteneity and fun still grow from class to class.
The Heart of It
Now that you've got scene and character work as your foundation, let's launch into stage skills that will give those skills the shine they deserve.
You'll learn show techniques like advanced walk-on moves, group-scene play mastery, and a myriad of ways to edit scenes. You'll add so many tools to your belt – monologues, 4th-wall breaks, audience interaction, and advanced object work. And of course, you'll be building toward more consistent, brilliant scene work with heart.
By the end, you should not only have the skills to play well with any improviser, but also be closer to performing consistently with confidence, wherever you like – for Improv Connection or your own independent path.
