Short-Form Frankenstein

WS 11

In this wild workshop designed for experienced improvisors, we have a blast with combining different rules from different short-form games to create “Short-form Frankenstein”: a mind-bending, rolling on the floor laughing experience! We start by exploring some powerful techniques for building the energy, commitment and bold emotional choices needed in short-form improvisation. Then, we will practice and learn crazy and unique short-form formats from all over the world. Finally, we will combine all of the above to enjoy the endless variations we can create by mixing up different games and rules.
