Improv Classes October 2009

Continuing the catch-up posts, here are the classes from October, 2009. You can get to the albums by clicking on the thumbnails.

Workshop 7 October 20097 October 2009

David, Allegra, and Tom have achieved just what I’m looking for when we start Scene From A Pose: randomness!

After our warm-ups, we did a complete rotation of Hitchhiker. Then a set of Remote Control scenes, followed by Scene From A Pose. Next, we did the Irish Drinking Song, and ended with Entrances and Exits.

There are 108 photos from the night.

Workshop 14 October 200914 October 2009

Sometimes selecting the cover photo for the night is just too easy. Yes, that’s Lisa.

From the photos, you’ll see that we had to find a new location for the night. The Star King Rummage Sale displaced us from our usual Jefferson Hall, but the Jewish Community Center was kind enough to allow us the use of their main hall, thanks to Nancy. It was a fine location for the class.

We did our warm-ups, including the 1 Word Story. Then was Transprov followed by the 5 Letter Word and then Assigned Quirks. After the Irish Drinking Song, we ended with a set of Subconcious scenes.

We have 126 photos in the album for the night.

21 October 2009

Unfortunately, I didn’t bring the camera with me and so no photos for the night. However, we were back in our usual location.

After our warm-ups, we did a set of Story Story Die scenes, then Slow Motion Commentary, and the Irish Drinking Song. We ended with a 3 Line Drill and then some Freeze Tag.

Workshop 28 October 200928 October 2009

Here we have David, Sol, Mark, Marley, and on the floor is Jim. This is a scene from one of their iterations in Half Life.

We did our warm-ups, then Tag Out Story. Next was Swedish Story, followed by Change. Then came the Half Life scenes and then the Irish Drinking Song. We ended with 3 Line Drill and Montage.

There are 158 photos in the album.

Improv Classes September 2009

Time to catch up on a backlog of class postings. So here’s the entire month of September (you can click on the thumbnail to get the photo album for that night:

Workshop 2 September 20092 September 2009

When you see the larger version of this photo, look at Robert’s sad eyes. Evidently it was a sad 1 Word Story.

We also did the No P game and Secret Endowment. as well as the Irish Drinking Song. We ended the night with the 3 Line Drill.

The camera lost power early, so there are only 88 photos in the album for this night.

Workshop 9-9-99 September 2009

Our scene work consisted of 5 Letter Word and Playbook (Actor’s Nightmare). We also did a full set of Irish Drinking Songs. We ended with a 3 Line Drill.

There are 188 photos from this night!

Workshop 16 September 200916 September 2009

Angela knows a dramatic moment when it presents itself, especially during an Alliteration scene (she had the very dramatic letter J).

In addition to Alliteration, we got in a Panel of Experts and the Irish Drinking Song. I believe we ended on Entrances & Exits.

184 photos from this night.

Workshop 23 September 200923 September 2009

This was a pretty large class with several new players. We started the night with warm ups (including the 1 Word Story) and then started our scene work with ABCs. We spent a lot of time working on to Typewriter, making sure everyone had a chance to both narrate and perform.

We ended the night with Irish Drinking Song.

Only 144 photos in the album.

Workshop 30 September 200930 September 2009

I’ve never seen Patrick so happy to be in a 3 Headed Expert scene.

This was another big night with several new people attending. We started with warm ups and then moved on to 3 Headed Expert. Next was a set of Random Word scenes followed by 3 Actions. We did an Irish Drinking Song and then a 3 Line Drill. We ended with some Freeze Tag.

There are 189 photos in this night’s album

Improv Class 26 August 2009

Workshop 26 August 2009I’m not certain whether that pesky Robert is scaring Nancy with his antics or whether they are both frightened by the intensity of whatever’s happening on stage. Either way, you can find more photos from this night at our album.

After a rousing set of warm ups, including a 1 Word Story, we did a frenetic set of Tag Out Stories. We then spent a fair amount of time working through a series of Step Out Musicals.

We worked on the Do Wop Song, and I’ll just say that we need more work on that one.

For the advanced part of the night, we did a full round of 3 Line Drills, and then finished with a couple of 1 Acts.
