SAT01 Improv for Gamers Level 1

Post by twelves » June 1st, 2015, 12:18 pm

Yes, Matthew Klein & I are running Improv for Gamers again! We had an amazing time last year and can't wait to bring the workshop back.

Last year we ran the workshop in the upstairs lounge of the residence hall. If we can snag that spot again, great! If not we may take this outside to somewhere shady, or maybe the rec-room in the basement?

About the Workshop:
As a gamer you may have heard that improv is closely tied to role-playing, especially in narrative-based games. It’s true, improv theater teaches many skills that can make your game rock: working together, keeping things interesting, and taking risks. The goal of this workshop series is to highlight those skills (and more!) as they apply to role-playing games through improv exercises and scenework.

Level 1 explores the Golden “Yes, And” Rule and how to celebrate getting into trouble. Participants will focus on character-building, listening to and trusting your partner, and creating short scenes. Beginners to improv are welcome and encouraged!

Wear comfortable shoes and maybe bring a bottle of water. You will be on your feet a lot!

No looky-loos. Having an audience can discourage people from letting loose and getting truly comfortable.
