Say What? [CANCELED]

Saturday, August 12, 2023 | 4:00 pm 7:00 pm

How does the audience know it’s improvised? The suggestion. It’s also the way that the audience member interacts with the players to become part of the show. This workshop will teach skills in incorporation of audience suggestions in creative ways, from initiation through to the end of the scene or show. We will also review techniques for methods MCs can use to get meaningful suggestions, creative suggestions, and alternative suggestions. (No more “pineapple!”)


About Noah

Noah Levin holds a degree in Theatre and Education from University of California, San Diego. He has professionally taught and performed improv, theatre, and stand-up comedy since 2001. Based in Barcelona since 2011, Noah was a founding member of Barcelona Improv Group, creating the Barcelona Improv Festival and the BIG School of Improv. Since 2022, Noah has been on the admin team at The Comedy Clubhouse and is the producer and director of Typical Adult Behavior as well as other local improv and theatre projects. In addition to Barcelona improv, Noah teaches improv and applied improv across Europe, serves as a board member of Ohana European Improv Project, hosted an English radio program, and performs voiceover.

“Noah is didactically one of the greatest teachers I have ever seen in action. He explains everything in a remarkable way, makes you understand whether a game is about listening, agreeing or something else and also gives you valuable feedback. He really considers everybody’s comfort zone and has an exceptionally thoughtful way of introducing everybody to interact, play and improvise.”

FAQS

Questions? Concerns?
Please (pretty please) read the info below or our full FAQs before contacting us! (We’re pretty sure all your questions are answered here).

Can I get a refund after registering?

No. We keep our course and workshop costs low to allow as many students as possible to learn the art & fun of improv. To avoid unnecessary headaches involved in estimating student numbers, keep administrative costs down, and generally be fair to all students and would-be students, we do not offer refunds once a course or workshop registration has been purchased. Please keep this in mind before registering!

Can I test a class before joining?

No. We don’t offer test classes or auditing, but we encourage prospective students to join our weekly open improv jam and to come to House team shows on Friday nights to get an idea of what we’re doing and who we are. This is a great way to meet us and current and former students, as well as join in the CCB community.

I’m going to miss some classes or the student show… Can I still register?

Yes but… we require students to attend at least 6 of the 8 course sessions in order to pass the course and continue taking higher level courses with us. In addition, students may not be more than 15 minutes late to 4 out of 8 classes in order to pass.

We do not offer make-up classes for missed classes. Students are added to a Google Group for their course and can message fellow students for notes about missed classes, but please keep in mind that no one is under any obligation to respond.

The student show offered as part of most courses is not required, but we feel that participating in the show is a fun and rewarding conclusion to the course, so we highly encourage everyone to participate.

If you know you’ll miss more than 2 classes, we strongly recommend you do not register as you’ll simply not get enough out of the course and you’ll be required to retake the course in order to continue taking courses with us.

I’m an experienced improviser, can I skip ahead?

Sometimes. We allow course prerequisite exemptions on a case by case basis, but please keep in mind that we rarely grant exemptions. We teach a very specific style of long form that is relatively unique in Europe. We lay the foundation for that in our Intro course and we’ve found that students who have received training at other schools that focus on short form ‘impro’, status and narrative are often at a disadvantage when skipping Levels, in addition to slowing down the progress of other students.

How many students are in a class?

Our courses and workshops are capped at 16 students max; some courses and workshops have a lower class size – these will be noted in the event description.
