An Alternate Approach to Scenework


An Alternate Approach to Scenework
with Bill Arnett
Saturday, May 20, 2-5pm (3 hours)

Taken from the pages of The Complete Improviser, this workshop will focus on finding and trusting the reality in the moments our improvisation uncovers. We’ll look to the rules of life rather than the rules of improvisation to help us relax, see the moments and play them hard.

Bill Arnett, founder of the Chicago Improv Studio and author of The Complete Improviser, is known as a good-natured teacher with an empowering approach to improv. He started improvising at the University of Florida in 1992 before moving to Chicago in 1998. He has been a part of several acclaimed ensembles including People of Earth, Maximum Party Zone and 3033. After 12 years of teaching at the iO Theater and 18 months as the Training Center Director Bill left to start the Chicago Improv Studio, a stage-focused training and performance company that takes a non-traditional approach to improv. More information about the Improv Studio and a link to Bill’s long-running blog can be found at chicagoimprovstudio.com
