Watch Improv like a Director, then SLAY on stage!

What makes a good Director is being able to quickly dissect the scene that said Director is actively watching.  They see all the moves and can name them.   If you use your on stage improv skills of listen hard, catching everything, and being 100% present from your chair in the audience, then you help you to make better moves when you’re on stage.  Jay Flewelling, award winning film maker and currently being scouted by the Timbers, will lead a discussion/lecture based improv workshop that is not hands-on.  This is not the type of workshop you are going to play “Bunny-Bunny” for 2 hours and get really sweaty with strangers.  Participants will be getting on stage for sure, but the bulk of the work will be from watching and discussion.  In this workshop participants will be honing observation skills and scene work analysis by channeling improv skills of sustained focus to actively watch improv like a Boss-Ass-Bitch –a.k.a. like a Director.
