Watch This Space is very proud to be inviting our first guest improviser to teach a workshop, the zany and talented Isaac Simon!
This 3-hour workshop is only €18, which is an absolute steal at €6/hour. WTS has called in some old favours to make this workshop much lower than his normal price, so don’t miss out!
Here’s his description of his workshop, “From Form to Flight”:
Boiled down to its essence, defining shortform and longform matters less than an ensemble’s ability to play as an empathetic and adventurous flock.
In this workshop, students work on building strong communication, finding inspiration in new and innovative ways, and learning the transformation tools needed to make scene changes. Form is set aside in favor of organic play. And the end goal: an ability to create a clean and beautiful open-ended piece.
This workshop expands the editing toolkit, and utilises techniques designed to bring games and forms together in ways that deepen the context and presentation of performance. Players are trained in awareness of what’s needed in the piece; the main philosophy behind organic play can be defined as “discovery-before-planning.”
Open to any student who:
Has taken or is taking a level 1 improv class.
Has attended many improv jams / workshops and understands the improv basics.
Wants to improve their scene editing
Wants to make a better shortform or longform show.
So, that’s almost everyone!
