Advanced Forms: The Pretty Flower (with Noah Telson)

Courses / Level 4 / Advanced

Saturdays, June 4th - June 25th (4 Classes)
1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

The Pretty Flower, also known as a Spokane (among many other names), is a longform that is centered on a slow, grounded Monoscene but includes fast-paced edits to explore funny ideas introduced in the central scene. Like a flower with petals or a wheel with spokes (get it?). It is an incredibly fun form that allows for a satisfying balance of slow-paced, honest improv and fast-paced, silly tag runs and you’ll learn all about it in this 4-week intensive course!

Performing a Pretty Flower well necessarily requires a tricky balance of improv skills. We’ll not only learn the basics of the form itself, but we’ll run exercises that train our brain to balance the grounded improv of a solid monoscene with high-energy, Game-based edits focusing on a single comedic idea. Perfect for any improviser interested in expanding their repertoire while also strengthening blind spots in their improv. You’ll learn a fun new longform AND leave with a new set of tools you can use in whatever style of improv you’re currently playing!

Student show: Saturday, June 25, 2022
