Improvathon Workshops

Our goal to bring excellent out of town comedy instructors to Tucson is highlighted this weekend with Michael Dean of Los Angeles and Jose Gonzalez of The Torch Theater in Phoenix.  Workshops will run from 10AM-12noon on Saturday, May 27th.  Register Here

Listening Ultra
Instructor: Jose Gonzalez
Listening is the most important & fundamental skill in improv whether you're entirely new to the art form or an experienced comedy veteran. It isn't just hearing the words being spoken; it's hearing the subtext of the character you're interacting with and understanding the intent of your fellow performer. Listening isn't just hearing; it's being aware of the tone & energy of the what exists so far and tapping into that. Listening isn't just being aware of everything around you; it's also understanding your own impulses & choices and listening to yourself. That's what Listening Ultra is all about.

Active Mind, Mellow Play
Instructor: Michael Dean
Learn to actively consider scenes you're not a part of. Think like a coach, so that your scenes can have more present play, from the inside or through backline support.
