FREE FORM with Will Luera, 10am-12pm Explore the mechanics of free-form improvisation, an exciting and empowering genre that elevates and challenges improv performers. This mindset is built on the concept of "follow the funny" and proposes that every single moment, beat, line and movement in a show can be deconstructed and used to lead you to the next scene. During this exploration and deconstruction of content, a language and pattern are established that help define form where previously there was no form. In this 2-hour intensive, students will explore basic tools that set the foundation for free-form, such as listening, observation, being "in the moment", pinpointing what the show wants, and fluid editing. Will Luera is Director of Improv at Florida Studio Theatre, and hails from Improv Boston. *Recommended for intermediate to advanced improvisers* ENROLL TODAY! Tuition $25 MUSICAL IMPROV for all levels, 12:15pm-2:15pm SO. MUCH. FUN! Having a good singing voice is not required to take this high-energy workshop.
