Learn how to create environments and objects out of thin air, and make scenes and stories come to life on stage. Pre-requisite: Spontaneity


A good improv scene can transport the audience to places near and far, be it a mountaintop or busy street, a future colony on Mars or 16th century China – all without the usual theatrical aids of elaborate sets, décor or props. In this important Core Series class, we will teach you how to create worlds, environments and objects out of thin air and your imagination. Through skills learned in this course you will be able to paint ‘invisible pictures’ that will help the audience see what you see in your mind’s eye to bring the story to life.

Prerequisites: Spontaneity
