TH 320 - Improvisation

Prerequisites, junior standing, and screen acting, or theatre, or theatre performance major. Improvisation aims to develop and expand students' imagination, range of expression, and to release them from self-consciousness by altering their attitude towards failure. Through a series of improvisation games, techniques, and theories exploring status, impulse, splitting-the-attention, give/take, clowning, masks, narrative structure, and character development, students will enhance skills used onstage and off (e.g., presence, flexibility, courage, compassion, team building, rapid idea generation, and problem solving). Fee $75. (Offered spring semester.) 3 credits
