Course Description

Hone your improv skills in this online workshop with David Razowsky, former artistic director of the Second City Los Angeles!

Know Your Status. Your status in a scene helps define your point of view. Changes in status keep your scenes alive. Status is the basis of character work. It’s part of the engine that drives your point of view and pushes against your partner’s point of view. Identify your status, either high or low, and recognize when it shifts. Embrace it and fully commit to your new status. Come join us and see why actors have called this methodology “freeing,” “exhilarating,” “inspiring,” and “artistically refreshing.”

This class will be conducted online via video conferencing. Participants must have a reliable Internet connection and a computer or device with a webcam and microphone.
