LASTING LONGFORM SKILLS
fully booked – waitlist
Saturday Oct. 9th, 2021, 1.30 pm–6.30 pm
To play a longform show, improvisers need a wide range of skills. In this workshop we will work on the most challenging ones.
Building a firm platform, inspiring your partner throughout the show, taking the story further and taking the story slower. And many more basic improv skills are put under pressure once you get into a longform. In fun, interactive exercises we will work on taking longform serious by not taking it so serious. Your improv and your longform will benefit from it.
FOR INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED IMPROVISORS ONLY

Duration 5 hours

TICKLE YOUR SCENE PARTNER
fully booked – waitlist
Sunday Oct. 10th, 2021, 3.30 pm–6.30 pm
Look at them: that beautiful human you share the stage with. It is your scene partner. But what are they thinking? Where are they going? What can you do with them?
In this workshop we will work on reading our scene partner (their face, their body, their tone of voice, their choice of words). All this will tell us how to inspire them in the best possible way. I will teach you some strong supporting skills, but also little quirky tricks to tickle their fancy.
Next to this we will also develop you! How can you become that person everybody wants to play with? Are you irresistible yet? Let’s make it happen!
Workshop Fee € 50
Duration 3 hours
Location TAG Rehearsal Room, Gumpendorfer Str. 67/4, 1060 Vienna
