2 rounds of personalized feedback.
1 awesome month.
Burst is a 4 week, 4 hour (16 hour total) performance focused improv intensive that includes three shows at the Havana Theatre on Commercial Drive. If actors learn lines from a script to tell a story, improvisors learn forms to make completely new ones. This class focuses exclusively on breaking down the longform games and styles that Instant is known for, from classic forms that help you build skills to exciting new forms that twist the way you think about story.
– Learn the tricks to make long form improv shine.
– A performance heavy environment to consistently test what lands with audiences.
– Use your writer’s brain to understand how and when to edit scenes.
– Listen to scene partners to tell the story they want to tell.
