Clowning For Improvisers

Saturday, May 20th 1-3:30pm

When not improvising, Shara is a professional clown and loves to teach a fun 2-3 hour workshop for all levels of improvisers to get more comfortable with physicality and playfulness onstage. Clowns generally aren't big talkers so much of the art of clowning is about using your entire body to convey meaning. If you are an improviser who feels disconnected from your body, this workshop will teach you some ways to bridge that gap in your performance. 

We will be doing a lot of movement in this class so please wear clothes you can sweat in!

Prerequisite: Improv 201, or at least 6 months equivalent improv experience.

Tuition: $40 / $25 for DSI Company Members
