Join Impro Master Teachers Rebecca Stockley , William Hall and guest teacher Shawn Kinley as they combine to teach the theories, techniques and activities of legendary improv innovator Keith Johnstone, author of Impro and Improv for Storytellers and creator of Theatresports, Micetro, Gorilla Theatre, Life Game, and other performance formats. The co-facilitators are all improvisers who have worked with Keith Johnstone since the early 80s. These instructors utilize Keith's approaches in their work as teachers and performers and have traveled extensively, sharing Keith's inventions with the world.
The first three days start off with a continental breakfast and then move to three-hour sessions with all three instructors. After lunch, the students work in smaller groups, in on-your-feet play session with either William Hall, Rebecca Stockley, or Shawn Kinley, all longtime students, colleagues and friends of Keith Johnstone. The fourth day will be spent on BATS stage performing Micetro for an audience. Divided into two separate casts, every participant will have an opportunity to perform in either a matinee or evening performance.
Our workshop focus will be on
Telling stories and playing with narrative
Building platform and discovering tilt
Allowing your partner to change you
This intensive is open to improvisers of all experience levels.
Guest instructor Shawn Kinley
As a member of the Loose Moose Theatre created by Keith Johnstone 35 years ago, Shawn has worked with Keith since the 1980s. These days, Shawn travels the world 7 months of the year visiting groups in Peru, Turkey, Iceland and many other countries on 5 continents. Shawn's background in mime and physical theatre mix in with over 30 years experience in narrative improvisation and a philosophy to teach as he improvises: Really SEE your partner, respond to the needs of the moment and be prepared to abandon your plans. Shawn's style is prescriptive and your particular needs will be addressed with a unique blend of Johnstonian ideals and world impro lessons.
