Advanced Forms: Close Quarters (with Noah Telson)

Level 4 / Advanced

Sundays, August 28th - September 18th (4 Classes)
1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

First introduced in the late 90s, Close Quarters is a form that plays with time and space in a way that leaves audiences ooh-ing and ahh-ing. It consists of two main components: a collection of scenes that take place in adjacent spaces over the same period of time and the effect these scenes can have on a character or set of characters as the improvisers learn and reveal more about them throughout the show.

Over 4 weeks, students will merge the ideas of Truth and Game in order to balance grounded scenes and characters while heightening and exploring them through a playful and unique use of the spacetime continuum. Get ready to wreck your brain.

Student show: Sunday, September 18, 2022
