Level Seven: Living the Story
Level Six focused on narrative, or improvising a full-length story. That makes sense, because though we love a lot of things at The Hideout, narrative is our forte’ – the thing we’re the most passionate about. So it’s a shame that just as we’re getting into it in a direct way in classes, we’re done.
Level Six teaches you the “hows” of narrative, and in Level Seven we’re going to breathe LIFE into the stories we’re putting up on stage. We’ll learn to do a playful, inspired show that prioritizes being connected and joyful about any other “rules.” Or at least we’ll try and fail, laughing all the way… and learn a ton in the process.
Furthermore, each Level Seven will be an expression of the instructor’s personal philosophy and approach to putting on a playful narrative. So if you’ve taken it before with a different instructor, you’ll get a different experience the second time around, as you learn to view improv through a new lens.
The next Level Seven is being taught by Kaci Beeler – Hideout director, designer, and performer, who has toured to over 60 cities in 11 countries to teach and perform improvised theatre. Kaci is an all-around artist with a well-defined sense of what she loves about improv.
“Kaci Beeler is an outstanding director, educator and performer whose work has had a huge impact both on Austin and around the improvised theater world. She brings a breadth and depth of knowledge, creativity and talent to every project.”
–R Kevin Doyle, Organizer of Improvaganza Improv Fest in Hawaii
