Improvising From Character: The Choice That Guides All Choices

By Improv Chattanooga (other events)

Saturday, September 23 2023 2:00 PM 5:00 PM EDT

Discovering and managing a character's POINT OF VIEW on stage in improvisation is a crucial skill that often remains undeveloped.

This class will teach performers how to quickly grab a POV (the choice that guides all choices) and how to develop and nurture those choices through a scene or show, using environment, gifts and relationships with other characters to fully be able to play character — the filter through which only your character looks. 

Join Rich Talarico, a 30 year improv vet and alumnus of The Second City and Improv Olympic, as he leads this informative character/pov workshop!
