Course Description

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

Deep Dive: This weekend masterclass will focus on using the skill sets of David Razowsky's methodology -- point of view, emotional commitment, scene heightening, making the "un-obvious choice" -- to build and sustain longer scenes, deeper characters, and surprising turns. In other words, creating unique scenes never seen or performed before. Use these learned tools to stretch you in directions you'd never think to go.

The session will end in a culmination performance with Razowsky on Sunday night. This intensive is open to advanced improv students and anyone who has been in a prior Razowsky workshop.
