THE SOUNDTRACK: an improv workshop with Sarah Michaelson

About this Event

THE SOUNDTRACK: Rethinking how music is used in improv theatre

Inspired by film soundtracks rather than musical theatre, this workshop geared for actors and improvisors offers a different approach to working with improv music. Workshop participants will learn how to listen and respond to music in new ways, how music can be another character, how to use silence intelligently, and how tools like contrast or montages can strengthen or transform scenes at unexpected moments.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Improvising on turntables and a mixer for 15 years, Winnipeg's Sarah Michaelson—known better by her DJ name, Mama Cutsworth—has provided soundtracks for many of the world's best in the improvised theatre scene: CRUMBS (Winnipeg), Det Andre Teatret (Norway), Patti Stiles (Australia), Impromadrid Teatro (Madrid), and more. In 2013, she co-created a wordless long-form improv show called Speechless, along with with Bogotá's Felipe Ortiz and Daniel Orrantia. Since its debut, the trio has toured Europe, North and South America, and the United Arab Emirates. Most recently, Sarah directed the 2019 ensemble at Edmonton's Improvaganza, presenting her format called "Midnight Radio."
