Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is a complete improv curriculum program divided into twenty class-length workshops. Each workshop contains carefully selected exercises designed to help students focus on one aspect of a character's personality. Students learn how to create characters from their own imaginations through the use of solo and ensemble pantomime, physicalization, vocal techniques, props and more. Gestures, facial expressions, voice and body language are studied in isolation. Many ensemble sketches are included, along with a final improv sketch with enough "roles" for all members of a large class. Also includes class syllabus and guidelines, character outline sheet to duplicate, character examples, and a recommended reading list. Sample workshops include: Improvisation, Character Development, Physicalization, Vocal Techniques, Pantomime, Entrances and Exits, Gibberish, Animals, Fantasy, Conflict, Commedia dell'Arte. Final: Wedding Improv.
