Focus Group Description

Class Title: The Politics of Improvisation
Student Faciliator: Ariel Vardy
Email: ariel_vardy@yahoo.com
Supervised by: Philip Thurtle
This focus group breaks down concrete improvisation hard-skills, while simultaneously offerings a reflective space to consider how we interact with each other, what tendencies we have, and explore what exists within us when we give ourselves the space to express. Each week we will explore a different technique or major theme in improv (such as listening, being present, making choices, understanding context, bringing intensionality, etc..) through experiential activities that leads into deep discussion. The content of the class prepares students to confidently start studying any improvisational art form, as well as critically engage with the way our daily interactions are improvised. Once you come to understand the basic rules behind improvisation, it can generate great fun! Unique way to earn to credits!
