About this Event

Experiments in Improv Laboratory with Becky Johnson

Nine customized classes. Three innovative shows.

July 25 - August 21 or 22

Thursdays 6:30-9:30 AND Saturdays 3:00-6:00

$425

In the signature offering from our first-ever Comedian In Residence, advanced improv students will explore the realm of what’s possible in improv and comedy amidst a one-time-only ensemble. This unique, twice-a-week intensive comes with three shows, which means the ensemble will be relentlessly generating new show ideas and then testing them on stage under the guidance of instructor Becky Johnson.

Designed as a lab space for advanced improv performers, this course focuses on pushing the boundaries of how and why we approach our time on stage. Participants should come prepared for all the rigors that come with creative growth: we’re talking taking risks. We’re talking homework. We’re talking riffing about big ideas in and outside of class.

This class will expose participants to various approaches to physical theatre and improv that usually fall outside of a standard comedy improv curriculum. It will also explore the questions and ideas you have about improv under the guidance of instructor Becky Johnson. Participants will leave this course with new tools that will help them create forms, evaluate what they like in improv, and take risks.

“Let's ask pressing and ridiculous questions and hope very hard that they take us to places we have never been before! And the let's make those new places entertaining.”

Eligibility: students who have completed Intro 3 or higher may apply to be a part of this one-time program, though it is possible not all will be accepted. To register, email directors@blindtigercomedy.ca subject line “Experiments” outlining in brief (100 words or less) why you’d like to participate.
