What you'll learn in this acting technique class:

In this class, students prepare and rehearse scenes from contemporary plays and utilize improvisation and games to deepen characters and relationships. 

Students explore how Piven uses the impulsiveness of improvisation during the rehearsal process, while being restrained by and respectful of a script. Best for students who have taken Improvisation, Games, and Risk Taking or Games, Story, and Scene, but previous experience is not required.
