February Electives at the Hideout ($10 on Wednesdays)

Postby acrouch » January 30th, 2013, 4:40 pm

January had big beautiful electives full of awesome people from all over town, so we're sticking with this model for February as well. Each two-hour class will cost $10 ($5 for currently enrolled Hideout students).

Check out the upcoming topics:

Wednesday, February 6, 7-9pm
The Free Fringe Frees You with Jason Vines
This elective will focus on something Jason Vines learned from creating several Free Fringe shows recently. ANY format can work. No matter how insane, stupid or just plain weird your format is, it can work. You’ll focus on good scene work amidst all of the chaos. You’ll also be creating as much chaos as possible.

Wednesday, February 13, 7-9pm
Singin’ It! with Kacey Samiee
Sometimes improv needs a little razzle dazzle. Kacey Samiee (Girls Girls Girls, Hideout performer) will lead you through the basics of musical improv in both short form shows and long form narrative. Learn to seamlessly weave in and out of song, communicate with the musical improviser, work as an ensemble or solo singer, apply song structure, and take a first crack at this amazing (and totally freakin’ scary) form of improv.

Wednesday, February 20, 7-9pm
Super Happy Funball Game Zone with Michael Jastroch
We’re told that the key to a good comedy scene is to FIND and HEIGHTEN the game. In practice, that can mean you spend the scene trapped in your head, searching for a game to play. But while you’re busy deliberating, you’re missing the fact that you’re already playing the damn thing. To quote the super classy Jill Bernard, “There is no game other than the one you create.” This workshop with Michael Jastroch (ColdTowne founder and instructor) will strengthen all the wonderful game playing muscles you have hardwired into your brain and help you heighten the shit out of what’s already there.

Wednesday, February 27, 7-9pm
Pretty as a Picture with Sarah Marie Curry
As improvisers we have the rare gift of being director, actor and writer, but so often our staging falls short in the balance. We keep the dreaded three foot distance from each other in every interaction, we create flat lines, block each others bodies, cluster, trap each other in large cast scenes, and stand, sit and play in the same ways! When we remove the element of being physically informed in our staging, we lose a precious resource for spontaneity and inspiration. This class with Sarah Marie Curry (Institution instructor) is designed to teach the basic elements of staging, balance, position in relation, composition and technique, to add as another tool in our arsenal of improv awesome.
